Peter Obi’s Appeal Dismissed By The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.

According to the apex court, the appeal lacks merit.

The seven-man panel led by Justice Inyang Okoro held that the appeal lacked merit and “is hereby dismissed”.

Obi, in his notice of appeal, implored the highest court to overturn the PEPT’s September 6 decision, which upheld President Tinubu’s victory.

But the panel in a unanimous judgment on Thursday held that the appeal lacked merit and ought to be dismissed.

Giving ruling, the Supreme Court said:

“Double nomination ought not to have come to this Court. The Court cannot sit and begin to explain when this man resigned and when there was a fresh Primary.

There is an end to litigation. The issue of double nomination was rested in May.

All other grounds were dealt with in the Atiku’s appeal and apply to this mutantis mutandis.

This appeal lacks merit.”
