The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised objections and is seeking to disqualify Tinubu and Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima, arguing that their double nomination violates electoral laws.

The PDP’s appeal is centered on the claim that the appellate court erred in dismissing their appeal and upholding the judgment of the trial court, which ruled the lawsuit as incompetent and without merit.

The opposition party has pointed out that the ruling party violated the law by nominating Shettima as both the senatorial candidate for Borno Central and the vice-presidential candidate.

Ibegbu called on Nigerians to refrain from resorting to violence or creating chaos in response to the court’s ruling.

In an interview with DAILY POST, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo chieftain expressed, “Well, the Supreme Court is the highest judicial authority in the land. There should be no cause for alarm. Whatever decision they make holds the utmost authority. We hope their decision will serve the best interests of justice and Nigeria.”

He further advised all Nigerians to uphold the law and resist being manipulated into inciting violence.

“We must not allow politicians to sow seeds of division among us. We share commonalities such as marriage, workplace relationships, and religious companionship. When these politicians assume office, their focus is often on their families, children, girlfriends, and associates, driven by insatiable greed,” Ibegbu emphasized.
