The Supreme Court has dismissed the complaint attempting to disqualify Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential and vice-presidential candidates, respectively.
The Supreme Court agrees with the lower courts that the PDP does not have the locus standi to bring the lawsuit.
Justice Adamu Jauro, who read the judgment, stated that the PDP acted as a meddling interloper and a busybody because the APC’s internal affairs are a private matter.
Despite the fact that the claim was dismissed for lack of substance, the PDP was given a payment of two million naira.
The Justices further ruled that the appellant’s (PDP) tone, calling the move as “sad,” amounted to deceiving the court.
