The prayer of the Ondo State governor and the All Progressive Congress (APC) to dismiss a suit seeking the governor’s removal from office before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja was on Friday refused.
The Second runner-up during the election Mr. Olusegun Abraham, had filed the suit challenging the victory of the APC during the election.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba dismissed the separate objection filed by Akeredolu and his party during his judgment.
Justice Dimgba, rather than dismissing the suit as prayed by the Governor and the ruling party, ordered that the matter be properly commenced via a writ of summons.
Justice Dimgba ordered parties to file their pleadings and all necessary processes in the suit on or before November 30.
He adjourned till December 6 and 7 for the hearing.
