Billionaire Jimoh Ibrahim says he will challenge the Appeal Court's ruling, which sacked him as the PDP candidate in the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State, at the Supreme Court.

The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday invalidated Ibrahim's candidacy and declared Eyitayo Jegede as the rightful candidate of the party for the election.

In a statement issued after the appeal court verdict on Wednesday, Ibrahim said he will get justice at the apex court, adding that the incumbent Governor of the state, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, will succeed in planting Jegede as his successor.

"We shall get justice at the Supreme Court and if PDP wins Saturday election, we shall have our four-year mandate to rule Ondo State," Ibrahim said.
