The petition filed by Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging President Bola Tinubu’s election has been adjourned to June 3.
The Tribunal adjourned to enable the petitioner to get a certified true copy of the Supreme Court judgment on Kashim Shettima’s eligibility to run for office as vice president.
The Supreme Court judgment laid to rest controversies around the double nomination of the Vice President.
The adjournment followed the submission of Tinubu’s Counsel, Wole Olanipekun that APM’s petition does not stand as the Supreme Court had laid to rest the sole issue the petitioners are challenging.
The APM is also questioning the legality of using a placeholder by the Vice President while still holding his Senate seat.
The Counsel for APM, on these grounds, urged the court for an adjourned date to be able to look into the CTC of the document and see how it affects their petition.
Other Counsels in the matter did not oppose the advisory of Wole Olanipekun and the move for adjournment by the Counsel For the APM.
Justice Haruna Tsammani, who led the five-man panel of Justices after listening to the submissions of the lawyers, granted the move for adjournment.
