Anxiety as the Supreme Court decides the fate of Tinubu-Shettima


There is palpable worry and concern ahead of the monumental Supreme Court decision on President-elect Bola Tinubu’s election.


Tinubu’s triumph despite alleged double nomination by his running mate, Kashim Shettima, will be decided by the Supreme Court today, Friday.

According to DSMEDIA24 the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is attempting to disqualify Tinubu and Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima for alleged multiple nomination.

The PDP argued that the act violated electoral laws.

The appellant based its appeal on grounds that the appellate court erred in law when it dismissed its appeal and upheld a trial court’s decision that the litigation was incompetent and without merit.

The PDP claimed that the ruling party broke the law by nominating Shettima for a senate seat.contender for Borno Central and as vice-presidential candidate.

However, the expected verdict is generating considerable concern among Nigerians.

Tinubu is set to be sworn in as Nigeria’s next president on May 29, but the Supreme Court’s decision could make or break the ceremony.

Chuks Ibegbu, a public affairs specialist, argued ahead of the ruling that the Supreme Court’s decision should not be taken seriously.

Ibegbu asked Nigerians not to be used in inciting mayhem in the aftermath of the Supreme Court verdict.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s leader stated

“Well the Supreme Court is the Highest in the land. There should be no cause for alarm. Whatever decision they take is Supreme. We hope their decision will be the best in the interest of justice and Nigeria.

“I want to advise all Nigerians to be law abiding. Nobody should allow anybody to use him as a tool for mayhem.

“Politicians must never be allowed to sow the seed of discord on us. We have many things in common, viz- marriage, workplace relationship, religious companionship, etc, and when these politicians finally settle down in office it’s their wives, children, girlfriends, associates etc they care for and their bottomless pockets.”
