Supporters of Eyitayo Jegede in Ondo state have taken to the streets to register their jubilation over Wednesday’s ruling that reinstated Jegede as the rightful candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

In the video, Jegede supporters were seen in vehicles, motorcycles and on foot along streets, jubilating and chanting Jegede as the next governor of the state.

In an unanimous judgment, the Justice Ibrahim Saulawa led three-man Special Panel of the court of Appeal had, Wednesday, vacated the June 29 judgement of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja, which directed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognise Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim as PDP gubernatorial candidate for the poll instead of Eyitayo Jegede.

The Court however declared Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, as the rightful candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the Ondo governorship election billed for Saturday.
