Labour Party rejects declaration of Tinubu as President of Nigeria

The Labour Party earlier rejected the declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of the 2023 presidential election and challenged the outcome of the poll at the court.

But the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) dismissed the petition of the opposition over lack of evidence and uphold the victory of President Tinubu.

The Labour Party then headed to the Supreme court to appeal the ruling of the PEPC but the apex court also dismissed its appeal and upheld the victory of President Tinubu.
