A group of five residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, have filed a lawsuit in the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to halt the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, scheduled to take place in just 17 days.

The plaintiffs are seeking an order to prevent the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, any other judicial officer, or any other authority or person from swearing in any candidate in the February 25 presidential election as President or Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria until it is determined with finality or in accordance with the Constitution that such candidate has fulfilled the requirement of Section 134(2) (b) of the Constitution.

They also want a declaration that FCT residents have a legal interest and constitutional rights to be heard on the question of whether a President-elect must secure at least 25% of votes cast on the first ballot in the FCT, Abuja.

The plaintiffs further seek a declaration that no state of the country is at the same time the FCT for any purpose whatsoever, including under section 134 (2) (b) of the Constitution.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and the CJN are named as the 1st and 2nd defendants, respectively.
