A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed the case challenging the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the 2023 polls.
A statement by the Director, Media & Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga confirmed the dismissal.
It noted that in the last couple of weeks, the courts had dismissed several cases brought against Tinubu by opposition elements, including Action Alliance, for being frivolous, lacking in merit and abuse of court processes.
In the case with suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/854/2022, Justice Fadima Aminu Muritala described the plaintiff, Elder Ngozika Ihuoma as a “meddlesome interloper having no locus standi to institute the suit”.
The latest is the fourth case to be dismissed by the courts in recent weeks.
Justice Muritala dismissed the case for being speculative after APC’s counsel, Julius Ishola Esq from Babatunde Ogala & Co urged the Court to dismiss it with heavy costs for wasting judicial time.
