As the Supreme Court dismissed the PDP lawsuit against Tinubu and Shettima, the inauguration is assured.


The inauguration of President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima has received the judicial nod from the Supreme Court.

The Peoples Democratic Party’s PDP lawsuit, which sought to disqualify them from the 2023 presidential election, was dismissed by the court on Friday.

The PDP’s lawsuit asking for Tinubu and Shettima’s disqualification was deemed to have a glaring lack of merit by the Supreme Court, which dismissed it.

In the lead judgment, Justice Adamu Jauro imposed a fine of N2 million on the PDP for interfering with the All Progressives Congress’ internal affairs during the primary election process and the nomination of its candidates.

According to Prince Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, the PDP interfered unfairly in the affairs of the APC and behaved as a busy body.

The Apex Court ruled that in addition to the PDP lacking the necessary jurisdiction to file the lawsuit, the party had also failed to present any proof that Shettima had used a double nomination scheme.

The Supreme Court also agreed with Fagbemi that PDP must remain an observer despite its pains regarding how the APC conducted its primary election and chose its candidates.

He spoke.

The court ruled that PDP’s action was painful because it set up a booby trap on social media for the Supreme Court to use as leverage to blackmail it.

It stated that this is extremely regrettable, unjustified, and uncalled for.
