Tribunal dismisses suit seeking to stop Buhari’s inauguration

The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has dismissed the suit filed by the Hope Democratic Party (HDP) and its Presidential Candidate, Mr Ambrose Aworu, seeking to stop President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration.

In a lead judgment delivered by Justice Joseph Ikyechi, the tribunal dismissed the application for lacking merit.

Respondents in the suit which include the President, his party the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) faulted the application and asked the tribunal to dismiss it for lacking merit.

The HDP in its application said it will be unfair and unjust to inaugurate President Buhari for a second term on the ground that the validity of the election that produced him has been challenged at the tribunal.
