PDP files an appeal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taken their case to a higher court after the Federal High Court ruled against their choice for governor in Edo State. On Tuesday, they filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja. The PDP is contesting the decision that said the primary election, which resulted in Asue Ighodalo being chosen as their candidate, was not valid.

The PDP has filed an appeal based on 25 grounds, claiming that the lower court’s ruling was not supported by sufficient evidence. The party argues that it conducted a legitimate ward congress with a three-man ad-hoc committee on February 4, and the opposing parties did not take part in it.

The PDP firmly asserts that their candidate was lawfully elected by the ad-hoc delegates who actively participated in the primary election. The Federal High Court determined that the PDP’s primary election was not valid because the party had excluded 378 elected ward delegates, which violated its rules. The court ordered the PDP to include these delegates in the primary election.

The PDP claimed that the lower court made mistakes in granting favorable decisions to the opposing parties and misunderstood their arguments.

The party wants the judgment to be overturned and for their primary election, which resulted in Asue Ighodalo becoming their candidate for governor, to be upheld. The respondents in the appeal include Kelvin Mohammed, Gabriel Okoduwa, Ederaho Osagie, INEC, and PDP officials
