Ogun PDP: Appeal Court adjourns Buruji, Adebutu’s case to November 20

A Court of Appeal, Ibadan Division, yesterday adjourned to 20th November, 2018, hearing in applications filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against an order obtained by Senator Buruji Kashamu-led faction of the party regarding list of candidates for the 2019 elections in Ogun State. The party had appealed against the order which directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognize the list of candidates for the elections presented by the Kashamu faction as represented by the Chief Bayo Dayo-led state executive.

The order which was obtained at a Federal High Court, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, last week shut out the governorship candidature of Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu and others who were on the list the party had earlier submitted to INEC for the election. The adjournment was sequel to the respondents’ lead counsel, Alex Iziyon (SAN)’s observation of noninclusion of the order in the appellant’s applications.

He also noticed some other omissions in the applications filed by appellant’s lead counsel, Emeka Etiaba (SAN). Etiaba, who had initially withdrawn one of his five applications filed on 15th October, 2018, however, explained that his junior, who compiled and filed the processes, made the mistakes inadvertently. He told the court presided over by Justice J. A. Bada, with two other Justices including H. S. Tsammani and Nonyerem Okoronkwo that INEC was yet to accept the Kashamu factional list as at the time the application was filed.
