The Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State, has dismissed a suit filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) against Adekunle Akinlade, Ladi Adebutu, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The APC had approached the court, seeking the disqualification of Adebutu and Akinlade as governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the PDP in the state.

The ruling party had claimed that Akinlade did not resign his membership of the APC before he became the running mate to Adebutu of the PDP.

The applicant also said Akinlade, having contested the governorship ticket of the APC, was not qualified to be the deputy governorship candidate of the PDP in the 2023 election.

In her ruling, Justice Joyce Malik, dismissed the suit and awarded N2 million in costs in favour of all the defendants—Adebutu, Akinlade and the PDP.

The court further warned that parties should desist from approaching the court with frivolous matters.
