Leaders of Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) loyal to Senator Buruji Kashamu have dragged the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, to court seeking stoppage of allocations due to the local government in the state.
The party leaders also joined the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Dr Olumide Ayeni, and Ogun State Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC) as defendants in the suit filed before a Federal High Court, Abuja.
At an emergency stakeholders meeting held Sunday in Ijebu-Igbo, the PDP state executive headed by Chief Adebayo Dayo said the party would fight its exclusion from the October 8 local government elections in the state.
They vowed to challenge the decision of OGSIEC not to accept their list of chairmanship and councillorship candidates for the poll in court.
OGSIEC had, last week, adopted the list of candidates forwarded by the Hon. Sikirulai Ogundele-led faction of PDP, saying the decision was informed by an order of an Abeokuta High Court delivered by Justice Mobolaji Ojo on May 26, 2016.
