Supreme Court Dismisses PDP’s Suit on Alleged Double Nomination: Festus Keyamo Reacts

…By Jack Sylva for TDPel Media.

PDP’s Suit and Allegations

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has responded following the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s lawsuit challenging the alleged double nomination of vice president-elect Kashim Shettima.


The PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had filed the suit seeking the disqualification of Tinubu and Shettima from the election, citing double nomination as a violation of electoral laws.

PDP’s Appeal and Supreme Court’s Decision

The PDP based its appeal on the argument that the appellate court erred in dismissing their appeal and upholding the trial court’s judgment, which deemed the suit incompetent and lacking in merit.

The party claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) breached the law by nominating Shettima as both the senatorial candidate for Borno Central and a vice-presidential candidate.

Supreme Court’s Judgment and Reasons

However, in its judgment on Friday, the Supreme Court agreed with the lower courts, ruling that the PDP did not have the locus standi to bring the case.

Justice Adamu Jauro, who delivered the judgment, added that the PDP acted as a meddlesome interloper and a busybody, as the matter was an internal affair of the APC.

The court dismissed the suit for lacking in merit and awarded Two Million Naira against the PDP.
