The plaintiffs also asked the court to grant an order restraining the PDP from presenting Adeleke’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the September 22nd governorship poll.

Ayandokun after the court hearing told journalists that his client is challenging Adeleke in court because he does not possess and has not produced his school leaving certificate.
