Some of the petitions dismissed include the allegation that President Tinubu held dual citizenship and, in turn, does not qualify him to contest for an election.

President Tinubu was also accused of forfeiting the sum of $460,000 in proceeds from drug trafficking as well as the alleged forgery of his certificate from the Chicago State University in Illinois.
