Supreme Court Adjourns PDP, LP Appeals As APM Withdraws

The Supreme Court has adjourned the appeals challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the election, however, Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alongside Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) rejected the result and have challenged it in court.

 Atiku and Obi challenged the election result alongside candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) but the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal struck out their appeals.

The three applicants moved to the Supreme Court, which heard the matter on Monday.

However, Chukwuma Umeh, APM counsel, applied to withdraw the party’s suit following the apex court’s refusal to grant its request to void Tinubu’s election.

But the PDP and LP continued with their cases.

The 7-member panel led by Justice John Okoro adjourned the matter after the arguments of lawyers of respective parties.

 “This appeal is reserved for judgement until a date to be communicated to parties,” Okoro held.
