Breaking: Election Tribunal Strikes Out Opponent’s Suit Against President Tinubu

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPT) has struck out the petition filed by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the nomination of Kashim Shettima as the running mate of President Bola Tinubu.

THE PUBLISHER NIGERIA reports that the court held that the petition was a pre-election matter and should have been filed at the court.

The court also held that the petition was statute-barred, meaning that it was filed beyond the time limit allowed by law.

The APM had argued that Shettima was ineligible to be a running mate because he had been nominated as a senatorial candidate by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 elections.
