Nigeria’s Supreme Court has dismissed a lawsuit seeking disqualification of “president-elect” Bola Tinub and “vice-president-elect” Kashim Shettima over the alleged double nomination of Shettima during the 2023 general election.

The PDP and its 2023 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, approached the court to seek the disqualification of Tinubu and Shettima over the dual candidate controversy, claiming that the same violates the Electoral Act.
