A federal high court sitting in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, seeking to disqualify the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, and presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi. 

In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1016/2022, the PDP had challenged the propriety of the substitution of the running mates for the APC and the Labour Party.

It prayed the court to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission  (INEC) to prevent Tinubu and Obi from replacing their running mates with Kashim Shettima and Datti Baba-Ahmed respectively.

The party asked the court to declare that Tinubu and Obi be disqualified unless they contest alongside their previous running mates – Kabiru Masari and Doyin Okupe.

The PDP averred that the Electoral Act 2022 did not make provision for a “place holder” or temporary running mate.
