The Supreme Court has dismissed the People’s Democratic Party, PDP’s suit challenging the alleged double Nomination of the Vice President-Elect, Kassim Shettima.
The Apex court agrees with the lower courts that the PDP lacks the locus Standi to institute the case.
Justice Adamu Jauro who read the Judgement, added that the PDP acted as meddlesome Interloper and a busy body as it is an internal affair of the APC.A sum of Two Million Naira was awarded against the PDP, even as the suit was dismissed for lacking in merit.
The Justices further held that the attitude of the appellant (PDP), amounts to misleading the court, describing the move as “sad”.
