Ondo State: Governor Akeredolu Drags Tinubu's Ally to the Supreme Court

The APC Ondo primary election crisis which put Mr. Segun Abraham and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu at loggerheads has failed to subside.

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) of Ondo State has appealed against the decision of the Court of Appeal that validated the service of originating summons to the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) instead of the governor.
The ruling of the appellate court has sent the supporters of Segun Abraham - one of the major contenders during the Ondo gubernatorial race into frenzy saying the decision of the appellate court was a quit notice to the sitting governor.
But Akeredolu, who directed his lawyers to file appeal at the Supreme Court, said the decision of the appellate court does not call for celebration from the opposition’s camp.
Akeredolu in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Segun Ajiboye said the ruling of the Appeal Court was being unnecessarily blown out of proportion as a result of ignorance.
According to him, what the appeal court ruled on was whether the service of the Originating Process on the APC secretariat in Abuja, instead of Akeredolu was right or not.
The governor wondered how the simple ruling was being twisted and misrepresented to the people.
