Supreme Court fixes date to deliver judgment in PDP suit against Tinubu, Shettima

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned until May 26 to deliver judgment in a case by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking the disqualification of President-elect, Sen. Bola Tinubu and Kassim Shettima, the vice-president elects.

The PDP had urged the apex court to reverse the Court of Appeal judgment, led by Justice James Abundaga, which held that the party failed to establish its locus standi.

SOLACEBASE had reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost its appeal seeking the disqualification of the Bola Tinubu-Kashim Shettima ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 25 February election.

The party had urged the Court of Appeal in Abuja to hold that the APC’s presidential candidate, Mr. Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, were not qualified to run for the election.

The PDP anchored its prayer on the grounds of alleged double nomination of Mr. Shettima as APC’s vice-presidential candidate and the party’s senatorial candidate for Borno Central in the same election cycle.
