PDP Asks Court To Disqualify Kwara Gov, APC, Alleges Certificate Forgery

PDP Asks Court To Disqualify Kwara Gov, APC, Alleges Certificate Forgery (Updated: 1 month ago)


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has filed a lawsuit against the Kwara state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq in the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The party wants the Kwara helmsman disqualified from the 2023 governorship election over alleged certificate forgery.


Its originating summons filed before Justice Inyang Ekwo also prayed for an order disqualifying the All Progressives Congress (APC) from fielding a candidate.

The PDP, in suit FHC/ABJ/CS/1324/2022 filed by its lawyer, Paul Erokoro, SAN, urged the court to make an order directing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delist Abdulrazaq.

INEC, Abdulrazaq and the APC are 1st to 3rd respondents respectively, NAN reports.

The suit insists Abdulrazaq’s affidavit in support of his personal particulars (Form EC9) and the accompanying documents published by the INEC contained false information.

It prayed the court to declare that the West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate attached to the affidavit bears ‘RAZAQ A. R.’ and does not belong to the governor.

The PDP wants the court to declare that the certificate submitted by Abdulrazaq and presented by the All Progressives Congress (APC) was forged.

Justice Ekwo adjourned the matter, mentioned on Thursday, to October 5 for hearing.
