APC 2023: Group Asks Court To Disqualify Tinubu 

Some members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Under the aegis of Gaskiya Youth Movement, are asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to Disqualify Bola Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, from the ruling party’s Presidential primary.
The APC members of the ruling party, made the plea in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/774/2022, filled before the court on Thursday.
While the APC and Tinubu are listed as first and second defendant, while the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is listed as the third defendant.
They asked the Court to determine whether Tinubu can participate in the APC primaries or that of any other political party, given his “questionable educational background and date of birth.”
Tinubu is among the leading aspirant in the race for who would become the APC Presidential candidate, which will be determined in the June 6-8 convention.
Earlier this week, a member of the ruling party in Kano State asked the party’s screening committee to Disqualify Tinubu over his Educational Background.
The plaintiffs are also asking the court to declare that “Upon consideration of the relevant laws, Tinubu cannot participate or contest in the primary election on the platform of the first defendant (APC)”.
They are also seeking a “declaration that given the questionable educational background and date of the birth of the second defendant (Tinubu) among other questionable issues, the first defendant APC cannot allow and/or permit the participate of the second defendant in the primary election of the office of the president.”
They also wants the court to declare that Tinubu “cannot participate by presenting himself in any primary election with any political party in Nigeria to be nominated as a Presidential aspirant for the 2023 General Election scheduled to take place in June 2023.”
