JUST IN: S’court Dismisses PDP’s Suit Seeking Disqualification Of Tinubu And Shettima 

Two Senators Resign From PDP

Supreme court has dismissed the suit seeking the disqualification of Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Gatekeepers News reports that a five-member panel of the apex court held on Friday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lacked the locus standi to institute the suit.

The panel said the PDP is not a member of the APC.

The PDP had claimed that Shettima’s nomination as Tinubu’s running mate was in breach of the provisions of sections 29(1), 33, 35, and 84(1)(2) of the Electoral Act, 2022.

It further argued that Shettima’s nomination to contest the position of vice-president and Borno central senatorial seat at the same time contravened the law.

This is a developing story.
