#OndoCouncilPoll: PDP in comfortable lead

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  has taken early lead in the council election results so far released in some units and wards in Ondo state

mim5The All Progressive Congress, APC, failed to stop the election as the Federal High Court sitting in Akure struck out cases, instituted by the APC, for lack of jurisdiction and abuse of court process. In her ruling, Justice, Folashade Olubanjo said the Federal High Court does not have jurisdiction of cases involving the conduct of local government election under the purview of state governments and its relevant agencies. Olabanjo added that it would amount to judicial pettiness to proceed with the suit when issues on the dissolution of the former councils was still pending before the Supreme Court.

According to the Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission, 14 political parties participated in the local government elections.
The chairman of the commission, Olugbenga Ige, noted that the number was initially 15, but PPA later announced its withdrawal, citing its inability to field candidates for the election.
