Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode has congratulated Eyitayo Jegede on his victory over Jimoh Ibrahim, a factional candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the Appeal Court on Wednesday, November 23.
Fani-Kayode expressed his disappointment at the actions of Ibrahim and his principal, the factional chairman of the PDP Ali Modu Sheriff, for taking the party to court over who should be the legitimate candidate in the Ondo election slated for November 26.
The former media director of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation in the 2015 general elections expressed his confidence that the PDP was getting back on its feet.
“Congratulations to my brothers Eyitayo Jegede and Governor Segun Mimiko and to our National Chairman Senator Ahmed Makarfi and our great party the PDP in our historic victory at the Court of Appeal today.
“Shame on Ali Modu Sheriff, Jimoh Ibrahim and their Justice Okon Abang. The usurpers, spoilers and agents of darkness have been exposed, justice has been done, the PDP is back and we are now on the rise.”
NAIJ.com recalls that Jimoh Ibrahim was named as PDP candidate by a federal high court in Abuja and he retained the position after the Appeal court adjourned ruling indefinitely while waiting for the Supreme Court to rule on motions before it.
The Supreme Court ruling came on Tuesday, November 22 and all motions stopping the appeal were dismissed.
