BREAKING NEWS: Senator Jimoh Ibrahim Drops Lawsuit Against APC, Aiyedatiwa, INEC

In a surprise move, Senator Jimoh Ibrahim, representing Ondo South, has withdrawn his lawsuit against the All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over alleged irregularities in the party’s governorship primary election.

According to sources close to the Senator, the decision to withdraw the suit was made following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa. The President’s intervention and assurances to improve internal democracy within the APC are said to have persuaded Ibrahim to drop the legal action.

Ibrahim had filed the lawsuit seeking to void the primary election, which he claimed was marred by irregularities. However, in a press briefing on Tuesday, he announced that he was withdrawing the case as a mark of respect for the President.

“The suit is now withdrawn due to the intervention of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR,” Ibrahim said. “The President called me, had a meeting with me, and assured me that he will improve internal democracy within our party. I cannot disobey the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Ibrahim also expressed his gratitude to the President for his words of wisdom and encouragement during their meeting, which lasted over an hour. He described the withdrawal of the suit as a gift to mark the first anniversary of the President’s administration.

The withdrawal of the lawsuit is seen as a significant development in the political landscape of Ondo State, as it paves the way for a more united and focused APC ahead of the upcoming elections.
