The case of Allied Peoples Movement against the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been struck out by the Presidential Election Petitions Court.
The APM hinged its ground for the suit on the alleged double nomination of Kashim Shettima for the 2023 elections.
It argued that Shettima was nominated as Tinubu’s running mate while he still had the ticket of Borno North Senatorial District to contest in the same elections.
The Chairman of the PEPC, Justice Haruna Tsammani, who read the judgement, said the decision of the Tribunal stems from the petition’s perceived lack of logic and failure to disclose any reasonable cause of action.
Justice Tsammani said he found the petition to be lacking in coherence and substance.
He said the decision to strike off the case underscores the importance of presenting clear and logical arguments in legal matters.
He said a petition must disclose a valid reason of action to proceed through the legal process effectively.
He emphasised the significance of adhering to legal procedures and ensuring that petitions are logically structured and provide a valid reason of action.
He also highlighted the role of the justice system in upholding the principles of fairness and adherence to established legal norms.
