The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has ruled that Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was qualified to contest the 2023 Presidential election, dismissing part of the suits by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP).
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Tinubu the winner of the election held on February 25, 2023.
However, both the PDP and LP approached the PEPC contending that the former two-term Lagos State Governor was not qualified to stand for the election over questions raised on his qualification.
They challenged the authenticity of the educational certificates presented by Tinubu to stand in the election.
Report monitored on Arise TV, said that the court held that the issue of Tinubu’s qualification for the election was a pre-election matter.
