Justice David Oladimeji of Osun State High Court has dismissed the suit seeking to stop Senator Ademola Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 22 primary election.

It would be recalled that, the suit seeking an order of the court to stop Adeleke as the candidate of the PDP because he did not have the required educational certificate to contest the poll was filed by two PDP members, Rasheed Olabayo and Idowu Oluwaseun.

According to Oladimeji, the first defendant was educated up to secondary school level and that the plaintiffs also admitted this in their affidavit.

However, he, added that the documents submitted by Adeleke contained some serious and damaging irregularities but added that the plaintiffs did not raise the issue of forgery in the origination summon and failed to prove that the documents were forged.
