The supreme court has restored the jurisdiction to the court of appeal, Abuja, to determine all appeals arising from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), leadership dispute in Ondo state.

Eyitayo Jegede had challenged the decision of the federal high court to substitute him with Jimoh Ibrahim as the PDP governorship candidate.

The court of appeal on November 18 adjourned indefinitely following an application filed at the apex court for stay of proceedings.

Beluolisa Nwofor, counsel to Biyi Poroye, factional chairman of the PDP in Ondo state had challenged the Ibrahim Saulawa panel set up to hear the matter.

The Jummai Sankey panel of the court of appeal had returned the case file back to Zainab Bulkachuwa, president of the court of appeal, following a petition by Poroye accusing her and her colleagues of corruption.

However, Nwofor withdrew his application at the apex court on Tuesday.

This prompted the five-man panel of justices led by Walter Onnoghen, acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), to order the continuation of the matter at the court of appeal.
