Shettima’s Double Nomination: Supreme Court Throws Out PDP’s Suit

0 minutes, 35 seconds Read

The Supreme Court has thrown out a suit seeking the disqualification of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima, as Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

A five-member panel of the Supreme Court held that the People’s 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 provisions of Sections 29(1), 33, 35, and 84(1)(2) of the Electoral Act, 2022.

The opposition party argued that Shettima’s nomination to contest the position of Vice President and Borno Central Senatorial seat, at the same time, contravened the law.
