A’Court dismisses suit by sacked ex-PDP LG chiefs

Akure—THE Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State, yesterday, dismissed the suit filed by the 18 sacked local government chairmen of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, challenging their sack by Governor Olusegun Mimiko.

The court’s verdict came two years after Gov. Mimiko dissolved the councils dominated by PDP,  and reaffirmed the June 4, 2009 judgment of Justice Nelson Adeyanju of an Akure High Court which declared the December 15, 2007 local government election which brought them into office illegal and unconstitutional.
