Court dismisses Tinubu’s candidacy lawsuit

The case against the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president in the 2023 elections, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been dismissed by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The discharge was verified by a statement from the Director of Media and Publicity for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga.

It stated that various charges launched against Tinubu by opposition groups, including Action Alliance, were recently dismissed by the courts due to their frivolity, lack of merit, and abuse of the legal system.

Justice Fadima Aminu Muritala dismissed the case as speculative following a request from APC’s attorney, Julius Ishola, Esq., of Babatunde Ogala & Co. for the lawsuit to be dismissed with high costs for wasting the court’s time.

The plaintiff, Elder Ngozika Ihuoma, filed a lawsuit against Tinubu and five other people on June 9, 2022, after Tinubu’s victory in the APC presidential primary election.

Ihuoma asked INEC to disqualify Tinubu from running in the 2023 presidential election, among other six reliefs.

In response to the originating summons and a notice of preliminary objection, the All Progressives Congress’ legal team of Babatunde Ogala (SAN) & Co. filed a counteraffidavit in defense of the lawsuit.
