The Presidential Election appeal Court in Abuja has postponed the pre-hearing on the appeal of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) until Thursday, May 11, 2023.
The pre-hearing of the petition filed by the party opposing Bola Tinubu’s election as president was postponed by the PEPC at its resumed meeting on Tuesday.
APM is contesting the results of the presidential election in a petition with the filing designation CA/ABJ/PEPC/04/2022 on the grounds of irregularities, including the falsification of election results.
The party is also arguing that Tinubu was not legitimately sponsored by the APC because he lacked a properly selected vice president.
INEC, APC, Bola Tinubu, Kashim Shettima and Kabir Masari were listed as 1st to 5th respondents.
“The third respondent lost his candidacy and was no longer qualified to contest the presidential election. When the fifth respondent withdrew his nomination as the second respondent’s vice presidential candidate for his said presidential election”, the party stated.
