Just In: Court Nullifies Candidacy of Ize-Iyamu’s Running Mate, Ganiyu

A high court in Edo state in Wednesday, 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.

After a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain had filed a suit against Ganiyu whom he said was not qualified to be Ize-Iyamu’s running mate, the court has ruled in favour of the chieftain.

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

Delivering judgment in Benin, the state capital on Wednesday, Courage-Ogbebor, a judge, held that Ganiyu presented false information to INEC in his Form EC9.
