      Bola Ahmed TINUBU: 3
      Abubarkar ATIKU: 0
      Peter OBI: 0
      Ratio: 3:0:0

      1. Court rejects request for live coverage of petitions against Tinubu: The Vanguard Monday, May 22, 2023

      REASON: Lacking in merit.

      (i) The court held that no regulatory framework or policy direction, permitted it to grant such application

      (ii) The court held that the request was not part of any relief in the petitions before it, saying it was merely hinged on sentimental claim that it would benefit the electorates

      2. Court fines ex-presidential candidate N40m for seeking to stop Tinubu’s inauguration: The Guardian Thursday, May 25,2023

      REASON: Lacking in merit.

      (i) Gross abuse of court process by filing a vexatious suit to provoke the respondents.

      (ii) The appellate court held that the grievance of Owuru against the 2019 presidential election was not only strange but also uncalled for because the matter had already been pursued up to Supreme Court and dismissed for want of merit.

      (iii) Judge adverred that the Petitioner’s bid to resuscitate the case was aimed at putting lower courts on a collision course with the supremacy of the apex court.

      3. Supreme Court dismisses PDP’s suit challenging ‘double-nomination’ of Shettima: Channels TV, Thursday May 25, 2023

      REASON: Lacking in merit. A sum of two million naira (N2,000,000) was awarded against the PDP, even as the suit was dismissed for lacking in merit.

      (i) PDP lacks the locus Standi to institute such a case.

      (ii) PDP acted as meddlesome Interloper and a busy body as it is an internal affair of the APC.

      (iii) The Justices further held that the attitude of the appellant (PDP), amounts to misleading the court, describing the move as “sad”.
