Breaking: Supreme Court dismisses Obi’s appeal against Tinubu’s election
The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal the candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, filed to nullify President Bola Tinubu’s election, saying it lacked merit.
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Obi’s appeal should be dismissed by a panel of seven Justices.
The court held in the lead ruling, which was given by Justice Inyang Okoro, that the grounds Obi brought up in his complaint had previously been resolved in a different appeal that the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, had submitted.
The only unique point offered by Obi in his appeal, according to Justice Okoro, was that Kashim Shettima, the vice president, had received two nominations from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
