COURT DISMISSES ANOTHER SUIT SEEKING TO STOP TINUBU INAUGURATION ON MAY 29
A federal high court in Abuja has dismissed a suit seeking to stop the swearing-in of Bola Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), as Nigeria’s president.
In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/ 657/2023, the plaintiffs — Praise Isaiah, Paul Audu and Anongu Moses — alleged that Tinubu lied on oath in his form EC9 that he was not a citizen of another country.
Justice James Omotosho in his ruling on Friday held that the claim was frivolous and an abuse of court process.
He added that the plaintiffs lacked the locus standi to file the suit.
