Four political parties have filed petitions with the Presidential Election Court to contest Bola Tinubu’s victory as of the time this report was written.
They are Action Alliance and Solomon David Okanigbuan (against INEC, All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and Hamza Almustapha), Allied Peoples Movement (against Tinubu Bola Ahmed, Kashim Shettima, and Kabir Masari), and Action Peoples Party (against Bola Tinubu, All Progressives Congress, INEC).
A similar lawsuit against Tinubu, INEC, and the ruling APC was previously brought before the tribunal by Labour Party member Peter Obi.
Emeka Ozoani SAN, the APP’s attorney, stated that INEC, Tinubu, and the APC significantly violated the Electoral Act 2022 during the process that resulted in Tinubu’s victory.
Ozoani said, “The 1st Respondent (Tinubu) would not have scored the majority of lawful votes at the election” if the “invalid votes ascribed to the 1st Respondent (Tinubu) as a result of corrupt practices, vote buying, over-voting, falsification/alteration and mutilation of election results, etc. were taken away and deducted from the 8,794,726 votes.” He also said that the court should declare Tinu
The APM claimed that INEC’s decision to declare Tinubu the winner violated the Electoral Act 2022 in its petition, which called for an order voiding and nullifying all of Tinubu’s votes.
