Sen. Jimoh Ibrahim, one of the aspirants for the April 24 Ondo governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to challenge the the outcome of the election up to the Supreme Court.

Ibrahim who said this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday alleged that the election was a massive electoral fraud that should not be allowed to stand in the interest of internal party democracy

Gov. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, won the primary after scoring 48,569 votes to beat 15 other aspirants for the APC governorship ticket for the November 16 2024 governorship election.

However, Ibrahim said he is heading to court for the annulment of the primary for a fresh one to be conducted and for delisting of APC from Ballot in the Nov. 2024 gubernatorial election in Ondo State.

He claimed that this was because the primary was manipulated to favour of Aiyedatiwa in all wards and Local Government Areas (LGAs) across Ondo state.

Ibrahim said that his litigation was initiated within the time frame prescribed by relevant provisions of the Electoral Act and would be sustained up to the Supreme Court.

“Two clear prayers are being sought for in the court as far as Ondo APC governorship primary election is concerned.

“The two prayers are (i), that the sham carried out on Saturday, April 20th 2024 , should be cancelled for fresh one to be conducted and (ii) , for delisting of APC from Ballot in the Nov. 2024 Gubernatorial Election in Ondo State,“ he said.
