*Come for my victory party on Sunday
*Court of Appeal never gave consequential orders on INEC
By Shedrack Duru
Apparently not satisfied with the decision of the Appeal Court ruling that has not only set aside the Justice Abang judgement that ordered INEC to publish his name as the party’s standard bearer, Mr Jimoh Ibrahim says he is the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate for the 26th November election in Ondo State and that nobody can stop him.
The three-man panel of the appeal court led by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, in a unanimous judgment delivered on Wednesday in Abuja held that Justice Abang acted without jurisdiction when he made orders against those that were not parties before him.
The appeal court also nullified the primary said to have been conducted by the Biyi Poroye-led state executive of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the party which produced Ibrahim as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
Jimoh Ibrahim, dismissed the ruling, saying “the judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous. The court did not make a consequential order asking INEC to remove my name; so nobody can remove my name from the ballot. The judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous. INEC cannot dare to remove my name.
“INEC will pay billions of Naira in damages if it dares to do that. What will it be acting on? There is no consequential order. The order is empty; it’s an empty voyage of discovery!
“I’m continuing my campaign. Nobody can stop me. Yes. I’ll invite you to the victory party on Sunday, after the election.”
