Tinubu files suit to restrain LP and PDP from halting results’ collation

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have filed a suit before the Federal High Court Kano seeking an order to restrain the Labour Party (LP) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from doing anything to stop the collation and announcement of the results of the February 25 presidential election.

In the suit filed before the Federal High Court in Kano and marked FHC/KN/CS/43/2023, the Action Alliance and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were joined as defendants while the Vice president of the APC, Kashim Shettima, was also listed as a plaintiff.

The plaintiffs in a motion on notice filed alongside the originating summons asked the court to make the order restraining the defendants from stopping the collation and announcement of the results because “damages will not adequately compensate for the injury that may be occasioned on the Plaintiffs if by the Defendants stop the collation of the result.”

Both LP and PDP have called for a cancellation of the election over widespread violence, alleged rigging, intimidation of voters, doctoring of the results, and violation of the laid down electoral process which was communicated by the refusal of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
