 Court sacks Ogun ADC governorship candidate others

A Federal High Court, sitting in Abeokuta, on Friday nullified the candidature of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship flag bearer in Ogun State, Biyi Otegbeye.

The court, which also disqualified the party’s State Assembly candidates, said that the primary elections which produced them were not monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The court affirmed that the primary election was held in violation of the Electoral Act, while noting that the candidature of Biyi Otegbeye and the ADC state assembly candidates is against the provisions of Electoral Act.

The court ruled that Otegbeye and the assembly candidates are not the valid candidates of ADC for the 2023 governorship and state assembly elections.
