The Senator representing Ondo South senatorial district, Nicholas Tofowomo, has dragged a former Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi to a Federal High Court sitting in Akure seeking his disqualification as the 2023 Senatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the district over his alleged controversial academic records.

In a suit, Senator Tofowomo who came second in the PDP senatorial primary, said Agboola did not meet the constitutional requirements for contesting the 2023 general election as contained in the interpretation and application of Section  66(1)(i) of the 1999 Constitution and Section 29(5) & (6) of the 2022 Electoral Act, 2022.

Tofowomo through his lawyer, Mr Femi Emodamori, claimed that the court should determine if the 1st Defendant (Agboola) did not present false information or forged certificate(s) in his INEC Form EC9.

The Senator prays the Court to disqualify Agboola and declare him the PDP candidate for Ondo South senatorial district for the 2023 general election.

Tofowomo also asked the Court to order the PDP to substitute his name with Agboola’s name as the party’s candidate for Ondo South Senatorial District in the 2023 General Elections.
