Justice Omotosho ruled that the plaintiffs lacked standing to file the lawsuit and that the court lacked the authority to hear the case because it involved a presidential election.
Justice Omotosho’s decision comes approximately forty minutes after the Supreme Court dismissed a second lawsuit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to nullify the candidatures of Tinubu and Kashim Shettima.
