Deji Adeyanju, a political activist, on Monday hinted that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal may not invalidate the nomination of Labour Party, LP, Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
This was as Adeyanju said the tribunal might not do the same with Vice President Kashim Shettima for double nomination.
Tweeting, he said the tribunal could invalidate President Bola Tinubu’s candidacy for double nomination.
According to Adeyanju: “Will be extremely surprised if the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal does not invalidate the nomination of Peter Obi by LP in line with the provisions of the EA on membership register.
“The Double nomination of Shettima is also enough to invalidate Tinubu’s candidacy.”
In May, the Supreme Court had struck out a suit seeking to disqualify Tinubu and Shettima due to alleged double nomination.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, brought the suit before the apex court, stressing that Shettima had a double nomination as senatorial candidate for Borno Central Senatorial District and vice-presidential candidate under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
