Despite this, Senator Jimoh Ibrahim Folorunso proceeded to sue the Governor and APC, blatantly disregarding party instructions.

“Additionally, he has engaged in anti-party activities by urging his supporters in Igbotako and Ondo State to join NNPP, claiming he will soon receive the gubernatorial ticket from them. Senator Jimoh has openly declared his intent to disrupt APC before leaving the party, as evidenced by his actions in the Federal High Court in Abuja and his derogatory remarks about APC in various media outlets.”

Senator Ibrahim who contested the governorship ticket of the party alongside the governor of the state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa had challenged the outcome of the primary election which was won by the governor on the grounds that there were malpractices.

The lawmaker also challenged the primary election in court where he is seeking the cancellation of the election in favour of fresh primary election.
