Supreme Court dismisses Obi’s appeal against Tinubu’s election





The Supreme Court has dismissed as lacking in merit, the appeal the candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, filed to nullify President Bola Tinubu’s election.

The apex court, in a unanimous decision by a seven-member panel of Justices, held that Obi’s appeal deserved to be dismissed.

In the lead judgement that was delivered by Justice Inyang Okoro, the court held that issues Obi raised in his case, were already decided in a separate appeal that was filed by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

Justice Okoro noted that the only distinct issue that Obi raised in his appeal, was the issue that the Vice President, Kashim Shettima, had double nominations from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The court held that it had earlier decided the issue on May 26, in an appeal marked: SC/CV/501/2023.

“This court cannot allow the matter to be relitigated in this court. There must be an end to litigation. This matter ought not have come here.

“The appeal lacks merit and it is accordingly dismissed,” the apex court held.
