THE Supreme Court, will today commence hearing on the crisis rocking Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State.

Eyitayo Jegede and Jimoh Ibrahim
The apex court will, among other things, determine whether the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, was right when she constituted a special panel to resolve dispute over who should be the flag-bearer of PDP in the Ondo governorship election billed for November 26.

It will be recalled that the Justice Ibrahim Salauwa-led panel had, on November 18, adjourned indefinitely further hearing on the matter.

The panel handed-off the dispute 48 hours after it reserved judgement on an appeal lodged before the appe-llate court by one of the contenders for the PDP ticket, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN).

Meanwhile, former Deputy National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George, has said that the decision of the Supreme Court, today, over the PDP candidacy tussle will be a litmus test for the nation’s democracy.

Speaking at an interactive session with newsmen to mark his 71st birthday, George said: “We are heading into some areas of destabilisation in this country.

“We are fumbling in the judiciary atmosphere,” adding that the Ondo State situation will determine the survival of the nation’s democracy.
