Segun Oni, the defeated governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state, has denied filing a suit anywhere in the country challenging the emergence of Kayode Fayemi as the party’s flagbearer for the July 14 governorship election.

The story which was published on this platform has since been traced to elements in the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Ekiti State, South West Nigeria.

The suit which was said to have been filed by his lawyer read in part, “Whether by virtue of All Progressives Congress constitution and particularly Articles 2 and 5 of All Progressive Congress 2014 Guidelines for the nomination of candidates for public office as applicable to the A.P.C Governorship primaries conducted on the 12th May, 2018, the 1st Defendant being a serving member of the Federal Executive and Federal Minister of Solid Minerals, Mines and Steel Development having not resigned his appointment as a member of Federal Executive and Minister of Solid Mineral, Mines and Steel Development, at all or at least 30 days to the said primaries election of 12th May, 2018 was qualified to contest and participate in the said All Progressive Congress Governorship primaries of 12th May, 2018 as an aspirant in that election…”
