It will interest you to note that there is wild jubilation in the camp of the APC following the Supreme Court judicial seal of approval for the inauguration of President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima.

The PDP’s lawsuit asking for Tinubu and Shettima’s disqualification was deemed to have a glaring lack of merit by the Supreme Court, which dismissed it. In the lead judgment, Justice Adamu Jauro imposed a fine of N2 million on the PDP for interfering with the All Progressives Congress’ internal affairs during the primary election process and the nomination of its candidates.

According to a report from Daily Post, Justice Jauro concurred with Tinubu’s attorney, Prince Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, that PDP behaved unlawfully by interfering in APC’s activities as a busybody and meddling invader. Continue Reading>>>

The Apex Court ruled that in addition to the PDP lacking the necessary jurisdiction to file the lawsuit, the party had also failed to present any proof that Shettima had used a double nomination scheme.

The PDP’s allegation of the Vice President-elect’s duplicate nomination was called regrettable and intentional mischief intended to deceive the Court and the nation.

The Supreme Court also agreed with Fagbemi that PDP must remain an observer notwithstanding its complaints regarding the way the APC conducted its primary poll and chose its candidates.

“It is abundantly clear that the Appellant (PDP) in the totality of its position in the instant case, is peeping and poke-nosing into the affairs of another party as a busybody and meddlesome interloper,” he said.

The court ruled that PDP’s move was hurtful because it put up a booby trap on social media for the Supreme Court to utilize as leverage to blackmail it. It stated that this is extremely regrettable, unjustified, and uncalled for.
