The Supreme Court has scheduled May 26 as the date for delivering its judgment on an appeal challenging the eligibility of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Vice President-elect Senator Kashim Shettima, both from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in the February 25 presidential election.
The appeal, filed by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), alleges that the nomination of Shettima as a Vice Presidential candidate violated several provisions of the Electoral Act.
The PDP is seeking the disqualification of Tinubu and Shettima, as well as the removal of their names from the list of eligible candidates.
The case has faced objections from the respondents, including arguments of locus standi and jurisdiction.
The Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal have previously dismissed the case, citing lack of standing and abuse of court process.
