BREAKING: Tinubu wins again, as another party withdraws case at tribunal



Action Peoples Party (APP) has become the second political party to seek the withdrawal of its petition challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate at the February 25 presidential election, Ahmed Bola Tinubu from the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

Reports, say the party has applied to withdraw its petition against Tinubu, who was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on March 1, the second outside the Action Alliance (AA), the first to do so, on Monday.

Channels Television, which reports that counsel to the APP, Obed Agu, also asked the court to strike out and dismiss the suit, quoted him as saying that he was working on the instructions of his client.

It also quoted Wole Olanipekun, Tinubu’s lead lawyer as saying he and his client were not opposing the application for withdrawal, adding that they also are not asking for cost, leading to the PEPT Chairman, Justice Haruna Tsammani, to subsequently dismiss the suit with no cost attached.

Following the dismissal of the petition by the party, challenging the presidential election on the grounds of alleged non-compliance with the electoral laws as well as INEC’s guidelines, the court rose to reconvene at 2pm for the continuation of hearing on the Labour Party’s suit.
