Boasting that the president would not appoint “failed politicians,” Shittu also explained why he didn’t file his case within stipulated time.
The Saki-born politician had taken the All Progressives Congress, APC, to court following his disqualification from the October 1st, 2018 primaries which produced Oloye Adebayo Adelabu as governorship candidate of the party.
Shittu was disqualified because of alleged non-participation in the mandatory youth service after finishing his university education.
APC lost the March 9, 2019 governorship election to Engr Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
OYO INSIGHT recalled that an Abuja High Court had dismissed Shittu’s case due to the non-filing of the petition within stipulated time.
Shittu, who spoke via the phone on a radio programme monitored in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, yesterday, said the suit was filed after the 14 days period stipulated by law because the party have a mechanism of resolving issues internally which must be explored before approaching the court.
This is just as he said he will appeal the judgment and fight it all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
