In what can be described as a stunning turn of events, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu might be disqualified if the courts uphold the judgement of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which nullified the nomination of Governor Isiaka Oyetola and his deputy governorship candidate, Benedict Alabi, for the 2022 Osun state governorship election.
According to the judgement by Justice Emeka Nwite Governor Mai Mala Buni who submitted their names to INEC violated the provisions of Section 183 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Section 82(3) of the Electoral Act 2022.
