The duo of Michael Famurewa and Olawale Ayilara, who contested the Assembly primaries against Idris Abiola-Ajimobi had approached the court over the outcome of the primaries.
The court had struck out the case challenging Abiola- Ajimobi’s candidature after the duo of Famurewa and Ayilara withdrew the suit in his honour.
