Court nullifies Ize-Iyamu’s running mate candidacy

By - - [ General ]

An Edo State high court has nullified the candidacy of Audu Ganiyu, running mate of Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September 19, 2020, governorship election.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had filed a suit against Ganiyu whom the party said was not qualified to contest the election.

PDP had asked the court to disqualify Ganiyu on the grounds of “giving false information” to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The Cable reported that delivering judgment in Benin, the state capital on Wednesday, Courage Ogbebor, the presiding judge, held that Ganiyu presented false information to INEC in his Form EC9.
