The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure,the Ondo State Capital has granted the sacked Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) local government chairmen the leave to appeal the judgement of the lower court on their dissolution.

The State High Court in 2017 dissolved the elected local government chairmen and councillors.

The court gave the sacked council chairmen seven days to start the process of appealing the decision of the state high court that removed them from office in 2017.

The court also dismissed a relief sought by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP seeking to stop the conduct of local government elections by the Ondo state government.

The three man panel of justices hinged its decision to refuse the prayers of the PDP on the basis that it was premature to grant the interlocutory injunction when such relief was already being sought in the substantive case.

Counsel to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Ifedayo Adedipe, represented by Olusola Oke argued that the court did not give a definite ruling on the conduct of council polls but counsel to the state attorney General, Titiloye Charles said the state government can now go ahead with the conduct of the election.
