Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja dismissed a suit filed by the loyal group of former minister of state for education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba seeking to disqualify Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC.

It was reported that the court said the suit, which was filed by the Incorporated Trustees of Rights for All International (ITRAI), was incomplete.

A judgment delivered by a 3-man panel of the court on Friday, February 17, held the APC's objection that the appellant instituted by the trial court, which was filed at the trial court then, was not a pre-election matter.
