Kogi Guber: Adeyemi, Ohiare, Others Drag APC to Court 

The senator representing Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi and four others on Thursday asked the Federal High Court, Abuja, to cancel the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in the state.

The former Auditor-General for Local Governments in Kogi, Ahmed Usman-Ododo, on April 11 secured the APC governorship ticket in the state after he defeated Adeyemi and four others in the primary election.

However, the aspirants had rejected the outcome of the election and described the process as a fraud.

The plaintiffs are challenging the process in the suits marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/556/2023 and FHC/ABJ/ CS/557/2023 filed by Mr. Adekunle Otitoju on behalf of Adeyemi and Shuaibu Abubakar, the son of former governor of Kogi State, Abubakar Audu.

Other aspirants challenging the outcome of the primary are a former Minister of State for Education, Prof. Stephen Ocheni, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, Murtala Ajaka and Mr. Sanusi Ohiare
