Sarah Jibril drags PDP to court over Jonathan

For getting only one vote during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primary election, a defeated aspirant during the contest, Mrs Sarah Jibril, has alleged foul play and has gone to the Federal High Court in Abuja to stop President Goodluck Jonathan from parading himself as winner of the election.

The Director-General of the Sarah Jibril Campaign Organisation, Musa Ajogie, told newsmen in Kaduna, on Tuesday, that they were also asking the court to declare as null and void the said primary election where Jonathan was declared winner, alleging that what the PDP did was ridiculous and had set a bad precedence.

Mrs Jibril also asked the court to declare that Atiku Abubakar was not the Northern consensus candidate for the PDP and joined President Jonathan, Mallam Adamu Ciroma, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Attahiru Jega and Atiku Abubakar in the suit.

“They told the court in their affidavit that consensus as verdict has nothing to do with voting. Consensus means unanimous agreement on an issue or on a candidate not by voting.”
