Justice Saulawa in his judgment ordered INEC to restore Eyitayo Jegede as the true candidate for the party.

INEC however said it was not planning to shift the date of the election.

“Yes, the judgment as we followed it shows that we must replace the name of Ibrahim with that of Jegede.

“We will obey the judgment because this is an order coming from a superior court. We will abide by that decision.

“However, we will expect that the judgment be served on us before Friday to enable us comply. When we are served, we will comply immediately.
