Tinubu Loses Bid To Quash APM’s Petition Challenging His Qualification

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has dismissed an attempt to discard the petition by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the qualification of President Bola Tinubu as candidate of the All Progressives Congress.

This follows a recent verdict by the Supreme Court, which ruled in a similar matter it filed before the PEPC.

Counsel for President Tinubu, Mr. Wole Olanipekun, SAN, had informed the court of the judgement by the Supreme Court, which, according to him, appears to have resolved the same issue the APM has brought before the PEPC.

At the resumed hearing on the petition yesterday, counsel for APM, Mr. Gideon Idiagbonya, informed the court that he still wants to go ahead with the case despite Mr. Olanikpekun’s reminder.

He, however, sought a one-week adjournment to obtain a vital document from the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Following this, the chairman of the five-member panel, Justice Haruna Tsammani, held that the party cannot be shut out in the face of a fair hearing.
