BREAKING! ! ! AT LAST, Court Finally Makes Decision On Preventing Peter Obi, Tinubu From Contesting

The lawsuit that seeks to prevent the candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr. Peter Obi, from taking part in the presidential election in 2023 has been dismissed on Monday by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

According to Vanguard, a judgment was delivered by Justice Donatus Okorowo refused to invalidate the candidacy of Bola Tinubu, who is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

It was reported that the lawsuit that the People’ s Democratic Party, PDP, filed against the two candidates for president lacked merit and should be thrown out.

In its petition to the court, the PDP alleged that both Obi and Tinubu had violated the Electoral Act in their conduct during the election.

It stated that contrary to the provisions of the electoral law, both Obi and Tinubu failed to nominate their running mates in due time while they chose to hand over their Vice Presidential tickets to placeholders.

PDP argued in front of the court that while the candidate of the Labour Party, Obi, selected Dr. Doyin Okupe as the placeholder for his Vice Presidential post, the candidate of the APC, Tinubu, submitted the name of Alhaji Kabiru Masari as his placeholder.

In the legal action with the file designation FHC/ABJ/CS/1016/2022, the plaintiff argued that the Electoral Act, 2022 did not include a provision for a ” place holder” or interim running partner.
