 COURT DISTANCES ITSELF FROM RUMOUR MILL ON ‘DISQUALIFICATION’ OF APC, BIODUN OYEBANJI FROM EKITI GUBER ELECTION

The Federal High Court says its attention  has been drawn to an online report in circulation on  a purportedly assigned Suit Number: FHC/ABJ/CS/528/22, claiming that Justice Inyang Ekwo disqualified the APC candidate, Biodun Oyebanji from the Ekiti governorship election, less than 48 hours to the polls.

In a statement in Abuja the court’s  Assistant  Director Information Catherine Oby Christopher says the Federal High Court hereby debunks the existence of any such case in its entire jurisdiction and indeed the Court Order as alleged.

The Contact Court states categorically that there has been no such case before  Justice I.E Ekwo.

The said report is unfounded, very mischievous and aimed at not only misleading members of the public, but also causing tension.

It is worrisome that some media practitioners hasten to give false information to the public for their own selfish interests, thereby unduly heating up the polity.

The statement maintained that professionalism and truth remain ethical values that should guide journalists in their daily reportage of issues.

According to her, this spurious reportage sold out to the public is most unfortunate and unacceptable, hence  it should be totally ignored.
