Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has struck out the petition of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) against President Bola Tinubu and his Vice, Kashim Shettima.
The court held that the petitioner (APM), ought to have filed the case before the Federal High Court within 14 days from the day the cause of action, arose.
The court further agreed with the respondent (Tinubu and Shettima), that the issue is statute-barred.
Justice Haruna Tsammani who is reading the lead judgment, added that section 285(14c), does not allow members of a political party to challenge the nomination of candidates of another political party.
Justice Tsammani concluded that APM lacks the locus standi to institute the petition.
Meanwhile, as of the time of filing this report, the court has concluded the first proceeding.
