Courts Nullify Primary Elections In Kwara, Kaduna

The Federal High Court sitting in Ilorin, Kwara State has again nullified the primary election of the All Progressives Congress in Kwara State as it also nullified the candidacy of Hon Raheem Olawuyi Ajulo-opin for the 2023 election in the federal constituency in the state.

 Justice Mohammed Sani, while delivering a judgment in Ilorin on Wednesday, declared Oluwasegun Adebayo as the winner of the election and thus affirmed him as the authentic APC candidate for the 2023 election of the party in Isin/Oke-Ero/Ekiti/Irepodun Federal Constituency of the House of Representatives.

 Adebayo in the suit filed before the Court said Ajulo-Opin had sought to get the Kwara South APC senate nomination and he had participated in the primary election that eventually produced Senator Lola Ashiru as winner.

Reacting to the court judgment, Adebayo on Wednesday described his victory as a ‘good news’ while noting that it was a victory for all.

However, Hon Ajulo-Opin in a statement issued in Omu-Aran on Wednesday noted that he had an unflinching faith in the nation’s judiciary.

Also, a Federal High Court in Kaduna, on Wednesday, nullified the People’s Democratic Party primary election for Kaduna Central Senatorial District and ordered a fresh poll in 14 days.

Lawal Adamu, also known as “Mr LA” was declared the winner of the primary election and his name was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the party’s Kaduna Central senatorial district candidate for the 2023 election. However, his main challenger, Usman Ibrahim, dragged him before the court.
