THE Peoples Democratic Party’s Senatorial candidate for the Osun Central, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa will be facing a disqualification Nigeria Happenings gathered.

According to an information gotten by this medium, a suit seeking the disqualification of the PDP’s candidate has been filed before the Federal High Court in Osogbo.

The plaintiff in the suit, Ibraheem Khalid of Ward 7, Olorunda Local Government Area of Osun State, alleged that the PDP senatorial candidate, Ganiyu Olaoluwa, lacked the requisite academic qualification to stand for election.

Khalid, in the suit, claimed that Olaoluwa did not attend Ikosi High School, Lagos State between 1982-1988, contrary to the information he allegedly supplied to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

“From the records available in the school, the individual in question, Ganiyu Ayobami Olaoluwa, was not sighted in the school’s register, most especially between the years 1982 and 1988, as claimed by him,” Khalid averred in the affidavit supporting his suit.

The defendants in the suit are Olaoluwa and INEC.

The plaintiff is praying for a court order, “disqualifying the 1st defendant from contesting the election as a candidate to the Senate for Osun Central Senatorial District scheduled to hold on February 16, 2019.”

The court has yet to fix a date to hear the suit.
