By Mumini AbdulKareem
The court-backed candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Ilorin South Constituency seat in the House of Assembly, Hon Raheem Jimoh Agboola will this week approach the House of Assembly to officially inform the House of the judgment of the court.
The Appeal Court sacked the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the election, Hon Hassan Azeez Elewu and ordered him to refund his salaries so far collected as a lawmaker.
Speaking with National Pilot on Sunday, Agboola said his counsel will formally informed the House about the development this week after perfecting all the necessary documentation to ensure everything go on smoothly.
According to him, although the House is on recess, they will approach the relevant department towards his eventual swearing-in.
Agboola had said in the court while reacting to the judgment that “This is victory for democracy and it shows that the judiciary is living up to its expectation as the last hope of the common man.
“It means we can’t continue to hide behind a finger as the law is no respecter of anybody. For us, we are heading to the assembly to play our role as expected and by His grace Allah will see us through”.
