Court Dismisses Ogun Assembly Lawmaker, Adejojo Suit, Upholds Doregoes As APC Abeokuta South 1 Candidate

A member of the Ogun State of Assembly, Hon.Yusuf Adejojo representing Abeokuta South 1 Constituency has lost his bid to secure a return ticket on the platform of All Progressives Congress APC, following dismissal of a suit  challenging his defeat at the party's primaries 

A Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta on Friday upheld the election of Oluwatobi Taiwo Doregoes as candidate of APC for the Constituency in the forthcoming State House of Assembly poll in 2023

Justice O O. Oguntoyinbo dismissing the case, said that Adejojo failed to provide the substantial evidence to support his arguments against the election of Doregoes  

Some of the people from the Constituency lauded the judgement of the court, accusing the Lawmaker of failing to provide the dividends of democracy for them before seeking the re-election ticket to contest on the platform of APC  despite their warning  in the constituency not to do so

 According to them, the House Chairman on Information, Culture and Tourism Committee  neglected the Constituency  for the past three years 

They accused him of not executing  a single project  to show his commitment to the well-being of his constituency, saying he  has not  even sponsored  any bill towards  the development of the constituency.

Also reacting to the judgement, the duo of Otunba Saka Adebayo and Mrs. Oluwatoyin Ikudeti in a separate interview with newsmen, accused the Lawmaker of not showing committment to development to the constituency  adding that  he has not  brought any developmenal initiative to the area.

They commended the Judge for being firm and fair in his  judgment, saying they were in support of the court ruling for laying the foundation of making true  changes in the  political setting of the country. 

The  judgement  according to them, will serve as lesson for  others who  use to abandoned their socio-economic responsibilities to their people after their elections into the offices.
