Supreme Court strikes out appeal against Kashamu-backed Ogun PDP Exco

… It’s end of road for Ladi Adebutu, others

The controversy over the Executive Committee of the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the list of candidates for the 2019 general election has been laid to rest as the Supreme Court on Monday (11th February, 2019) struck out the appeal of the PDP seeking to relist its appeal against the 24th June, 2016 judgment of the Federal High Court, Lagos, which affirmed the Engr. Adebayo Dayo-led State Exco of the PDP in Ogun State.

The Dayo-led Exco is backed by the lawmaker representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Senator Buruji Kashamu who has been locked in a battle for the control of the state party structure and candidates’ list.

The trial court judgment also mandated INEC to accept the list of candidates emerging from primaries conducted by the said Exco for the 2019 general elections in Ogun State.

When the matter came up on Monday, the apex court during the proceedings sought to know the nature of the appeal; whether it was a pre-election matter or not.

Responding, the appellant’s counsel (PDP), Mr. Emeka Etiaba stated that it was not a pre-election matter.

However, the respondents’ counsel, Dr. Alex Izinyon (SAN) referred the court to the appellant’s pending application for abridgment of time wherein they stated facts pointing to a pre-election case.

These facts, he pointed out, formed the basis and grounds of the said application for abridgment of time.

Seeing that their application had been caught up by the 4th Alteration to the 1999 Constitution, Etiaba subsequently withdrew the appeal and it was accordingly struck out based on the provisions of Section 285 of the Constitution.

No order was made as to cost.

With the striking out of the appeal in SC.968/2018 PDP Vs Chief (Engr.) Adebayo Dayo & 4Ors., it puts an end to the several speculations surrounding the list of PDP candidates in Ogun State.

It is now end of the road for Adebutu and other candidates purportedly backed by the national leadership of the party.
