The factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jimoh Ibrahim has expressed hope that he will win the upcoming governorship election.
He said “We are going to win. There is no grammar about that.
“Is anybody saying no? The PDP has been here for 14 years and how can somebody come here yesterday and come and overtake us.”
This is coming as the Supreme Court threw out a suit stopping the Appeal Court from hearing the PDP governorship candidacy case.
The businessman turned politician said his name will be on the ballot paper on election day, November 26, 2016.
He said “It is not possible for my name to be removed for this election, it is not possible. “Nobody can remove it, it is there and it will be there until Saturday.”
According to Premium Times, Ibrahim said the Supreme Court judgement is a welcome development, adding that it still does not stop him from standing for the election.
He said “Has the court changed my name?”
“If you bring a matter before the Supreme Court and the court says you should go back to the appeal court to hear the case how does that affect me?”
Meanwhile, the PDP has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone Ondo governorship election by three weeks so it can resolve the legal dispute over who will be the party’s candidate.
