Businessman Jimoh Ibrahim was yesterday named as Ondo State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the November 26 governorship election.
In the final list of candidates posted on its website last night, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) recognized Ibrahim and his running mate Alabi Ebenezer Omotayo, with a caveat: court order.
An INEC official explained that there could still be a change of candidate and running mate if a superior court makes a contrary pronouncement. “We obeyed the last court pronouncement in the matter”, he added.
Other major candidates on the list are Olusola Oke for Alliance for Democracy (AD), Rotimi Akeredolu for All Progressives Congress (APC), Olu Agunsoye for Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Bolarinwa Aidi for Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN).
