Babayemi to challenge Adeleke’s candidature at Supreme Court

Osun State governorship faction candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Dotun Babayemi, says he may seek redress at the Supreme Court after losing at the Appeal Court yesterday.

Babayemi and Governor-elect Ademola Adeleke had been elected as party candidates at parallel primaries that were held at WOCDIF Event Centre and Osogbo Township Stadium.

He sued the PDP, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and Senator Adeleke over the election.

Babayemi’s spokesperson Kayode Oladeji said his principal and his team were evaluating the Appeal Court judgment to know the next line of action to take.

In a statement, he said: “Consequent upon the judgment of Federal Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State, Prince Babayemi, who is seeking the validation of his candidature as the authentic governorship candidate of the Osun State PDP, has asserted that he is evaluating all available options and shall act in the best interest of our people.

“He maintained that unless some factors that necessitated the litigation were looked into by the party hierarchy, he might explore redress at the apex court of the land, being the Supreme Court.”
