Tribunal strikes out suit seeking disqualification of VP Shettima.

 VP Kashim Shettima 

The Allied Peoples Movement (APM)’s petition challenging double nomination of vice-President, Kashim Shettima has been struck out by the Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja.

The party had argued that Tinubu was improperly sponsored by the All Progressives Congress, APC, for nominating Kashim Shettima as his vice-presidential candidate for the election.

The opposition party had claimed that Shettima was still the APC candidate for Borno Central Senatorial District on July 14 when he accepted the nomination for vice-presidential candidate.

However, in a ruling read by Justice Haruna Tsammani, chairman of the panel, on the case on Wednesday, September 6, the PEPT held that it is a pre-election matter, and that it lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the matter.

The court also held that APM lacked locus standi to institute matters bothering on nomination and sponsorship of Shettima
