The Nigerian Supreme Court has dismissed a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party seeking to disqualify the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shetima, from contesting the February 25, 2023 presidential election on account of double nomination.

The PDP had argued that Shettima’s nomination as the running mate was in breach of the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022 (as amended).

However, the court held that the PDP lacked the legal right to file the suit against Tinubu and Shettima, as the party was unable to show that its civil rights had been infringed upon or how the action of Tinubu in picking Shettima as his running mate had affected or caused injury to the party.

The court also noted that for a person to have the legal right to challenge a nomination process of a political party, the person must be a natural person, an aspirant to that position, and a member of that party.
