Osun By-election: PDP Member Approached Court, Seeks Ademola Adeleke's Disqualification






Bearly five daycs before the conduct  of Osun West senatorial district by-election, a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Morufu Ayanlowo has filled a litigation before a Federal High Court in Osogbo, seeking the disqualification of the party's candidate, Otunba Ademola Adeleke.

Ayanlowo who hail from Ward 8, Irewole Local Government of Osun State, approached the court to stop Adeleke from contesting the poll.

In the suit registered FHC/OS/C8/35/2017 filled at the court on Monday, Ayanlowo claimed that Adeleke was not a member of the PDP as at the time he participated in the primary election of the party on June 14, against Section 8 of the party’s constitution.

According to Ayanlowo who attached his PDP membership card to the suit, Adeleke should not have or allowed to participate in the primary election of the party.

He, therefore, sought for a declaration that Adeleke did not satisfy the provisions of the PDP’s guidelines for primary election and ought not to have been allowed to participate and subsequently nominated as the flag bearer of the party.

Ayanlowo also sought for an order declaring the participation and subsequent nomination of Ademola Adeleke as illegal, null and void having been done contrary to the provisions of the PDP’s guidelines for primary election and Constitution.


Joined in the suit are the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
