The People’s Democratic Party PDP has denied rumors making the rounds that the Appeal Court has ruled in favor of Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim, a gubernatorial candidate in the upcoming Ondo state governorship election.
The party in a statement it made this morning via its Twitter handle described the rumour as the handiwork of confused elements working in cohorts to destabilize the party.
According to the PDP, “The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, FCT is still in progress and will decide after all matters before them are considered.
“Our members, teeming supporters and the people of Ondo State should note this and ignore the rumour.
“We should all continue to pray for the success of our Party, the PDP and our Candidate, Eyitayo Jegede in the forthcoming.”
Two factions of the PDP are currently embroiled in a legal battle over who is eligible to be the party’s flagbearer at the November 26th governorship election in the state.
