The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal filed by a former Minister of State for Education Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba seeking to disqualify President-Elect Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress APC and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party as presidential candidates of their political parties.

A five-man panel of the Apex Court led by Justice Inyang Okoro dropped the suit on the ground that it was statute barred and did not award cost against the former minister for withdrawing his case when informed that the case was filed outside the time prescribed by law.

Nwajiuba and a civil group are challenging Tinubu’s nomination on the ground that he did not disclose the source of his 100, 000,000 million Naira which he paid to obtain the nomination and expression of interest form and that the All Progressives Congress APC also did not comply with the federal character principle in the composition of the national working committee.

He had lost at the Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal both in Abuja on the same ground that his case lacked merit that could make the court look into it.
