The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have rejected the plans of the Presidential Election Petition Court to merge three petitions challenging the result of the February 25 presidential election.

The petitions were filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, the Labour Party (LP) and its candidate Peter Obi, and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

The tribunal had announced that all the petitions against Tinubu’s election would be merged for easy adjudication, but the APC argued that consolidating the petitions would go against the interest of justice.

Tinubu’s legal team also argued that consolidating all the petitions would hinder their ability to defend the issues raised against the President-elect.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stated that it would defer to the court’s discretion regarding the consolidation issue.

INEC had declared Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential election.
