As contained in the report by TheCable, the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1016/2022 is praying for the court to issue a judgment that will compel INEC to declare the running mates of Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi as illegal.
The duo before now had presented different names (Kabiru Masari, (APC), and Doyin Okupe (LP)) as placeholder running mates.
Subsequently, the duo replaced its placeholder candidates with Sen. Kashim Shettima and Sen. Datti Baba-Ahmed respectively.
According to the Daily Independent, this move prompted the suit filed by the PDP urging the court to disqualify Tinubu and Obi or enter the 2023 presidential election with their placeholder running mates.
