Court Dismisses Suit Against Kwara Governor 


A certificate forgery case filed against the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has been dismissed by a hight court sitting in Ilorin on Wednesday.

The suit was dismissed following the claimant’s application to withdraw the case.

The judge, Justice Adenike Akinpelu, dismissed the case after Adekunle Abraham, a member of the Peoples Democratic  Party (PDP) who filed the case, told the court he had presented a notice of withdrawal of the case.

Akinpelu held that the withdrawal means that the efforts of one Olusola Olaseinde who wanted to join the suit were inconsequential since the original case has been withdrawn.

The governor had earlier termed the case as been politically motivated and means to stop him from contesting the March 9 governorship poll, adding that the claimant was acting out a script from his political adversary.
