A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Victor Ategbole, on Thursday urged the Federal High Court, sitting in Akure, the state capital, to cancel the results of the last primary of the party for House of Representatives in the Akoko South-East/Akoko South-West Federal Constituency of the state.
A son of late Governor Adebayo Adefarati, Adegboyega Adefarati, was declared the winner of the primary, defeating other aspirants, but one of the aspirants, Victor Ategbole, was not satisfied with the outcome as he approached the court, seeking nullification of the result of the primary.
The suit has Adefarati, the Independent National Electoral Commission and the state Chairman of the APC, Ade Adetimehin, as defendants.
At the first sitting of the court it was gathered that the defendants were not represented in court, and the case was adjourned. On the second sitting on Thursday, only the first defendant (Adefarati) was not represented in court, so the court ordered a substituted service on him.
