Members Drag PDP, Adeleke To Court Over ‘Fake’ Certificate For Primary Election

Three members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun state have dragged the party and its governorship candidate in the September 22 governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, to court for allegedly contesting PDP governorship primary election with a fake certificate.

The plaintiffs sought Adeleke’s disqualification from the September 22 governorship election for allegedly submitting fake certificates to secure clearance for the PDP primary.

It would be recalled that two PDP members, Rasheed Olabayo and Idowu Oluwaseun, before the governorship election, dragged Senator Adeleke before Justice David Oladimeji of an Osogbo High Court seeking his disqualification from the governorship election, because the federal lawmaker did not have minimum educational requirement to contest for the office of governor.
