All primaries held by the several Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) groups in the state were annulled by a Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.
Therefore, a new round of primaries must be held within fourteen days, according to the presiding judge, Justice O.O. Oguntoyinbo.
The Court determined that none of the held primaries adhered to the Electoral Act’s basic principles.
A governorship aspirant, Jimi Lawal, had approached the Court challenging the delegate list used during the primary by the Sikirulahi Ogundele faction of the party and held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta.
Other candidates had also approached the Court to challenge the authenticity of the Sikirulahi Ogundele-led state executive of the party in the state.
