The Supreme Court on Monday slammed the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and dismissed its appeal against the election of Bola Tinubu.
The APM had challenged Tinubu’s election on the grounds that his running mate, Kashim Shettima, was a senatorial candidate at the time he was nominated as vice president.
The Supreme Court held that the issue had already been determined in a previous case filed by the Peoples Democratic Party against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“What will you gain if you win this appeal?” Justice Inyang Okoro asked the APM’s legal team.
The APM lawyers eventually withdrew the case, and the Supreme Court subsequently dismissed it.
The Supreme Court has reserved judgment in the appeals filed by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party against Tinubu’s election.
The Supreme Court has until November 6, 2023, to give a judgment on the appeals.
