Eyitayo Jegede is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said lastnight.
INEC’s position followed the Court of Appeal’s judgment that Jegede, not Jimoh Ibrahim is the right candidate for Saturday’s election.
Jegede’s candidacy has again put the Akure agenda on the front burner.
But the ruling party may be constrained by time. It is trailing behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Alliance for Democracy (AD) in campaigns.
The Court of Appeal in Abuja voided the October 14 ruling of the Federal High Court, Abuja in which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was ordered to substitute Jegede (SAN) with Ibrahim.
