Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led factional Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) expressed dissatisfaction towards this development.
The Independent National Electoral Commission has named Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.
In a letter sent to the Ondo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Segun Agbaje, the commission described the list as final.
The letter conveying the list was signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Mr. Augusta Ogakwu.
The emergence of Ibrahim came on the heels of a ruling by a Federal High Court in Abuja, which rejected a move by Jegede to appeal against the recognition of Ibrahim as the candidate of the PDP.
Specifically, Justice Okon Abang, on Thursday, dismissed the application by Jegede on the grounds that he lacked the locus standi to file it.
This announcement has disqualified Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) from the governorship election race.
