JUST IN: Court Dismisses Petition Against Tinubu

JUST IN: Court Dismisses Petition Against Tinubu


The Presidential Petition

Election Court (PREPEC) has dismissed the petition by the Action Peoples Party (APP) challenging the February 25 presidential election. 

The five-member panel of justice led by Justice Haruna Tsammani, on Wednesday, threw out the case after the party announced its withdrawal of the petition.

At the resumed hearing, counsel to the APP, Obed Agu Esq announced that the party and its presidential candidate, Simon Nnadi, have resolved to withdraw the petition.

He gave no further reason.

It should be noted that at the inaugural sitting of the tribunal on Monday, Agu had in his pre-hearing motion asked the tribunal to compel Tinubu and APC to concede the election before the main hearing because of the weight of evidence at their disposal showing they (APC) rigged the election.

But lawyers to APC and Tinubu, Lateef Fagbemi and Wole Olanipekun, both Senior Advocates of Nigeria, informed the tribunal that will deal with the issues at the right time.
