A Federal High Court, Lagos, will on March 1, 2021 deliver judgment in respect of a suit on the bye-election for the Lagos East Senatorial District of December 5, 2020.

The PDP and its candidate in the poll, Ademola Gbadamosi, are the first and second applicants, while the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the All Progressives Congress, APC and Senator Tokunbo Abiru are the first to third defendants in the suit.

The PDP is pursuing a claim that Mr. Abiru of the APC was ineligible for the election on grounds relating to alleged double voter registration and indigeneship.

But Abiru, who won the election by a landslide, polling 89,204 votes against Gbadamosi’s 11,257 votes, argued his objection to the suit through his counsel  Kemi Pinheiro, SAN.

Justice Chuka Obiozor fixed the date after the All Progressives Congress, APC counsel, Abiodun Owonikoko, SAN, adopted his counter affidavit challenging the PDP’s originating summons seeking Abiru’s disqualification.

This followed the conclusion of arguments by counsel to all the parties.
