Politics: WILL THEY CONTEST?? PDP Loses As Court Rules On Suit Seeking To Disqualify Tinubu, Obi – Daily Parrot

A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking the disqualification of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu; and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi.

According to Channels TV, the lawsuit challenging the legality of the substitution of the running mates for Tinubu and Obi was dismissed on Monday on the grounds that the court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the suit and that the suit was a gross abuse of court process.

Justice Donatus Okoronkwo also stated that all the reliefs sought by the PDP were not grantable.

The main opposition PDP is claiming that the Electoral Act 2022 did not make provision for a “placeholder” or temporary running mate and that the replacement of running mates is not applicable to Ibrahim Masari and Doyin Okupe.
