The Federal High Court has dismissed a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, seeking to disqualify the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, and the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi over alleged unlawful substitution of their running mates.

In his ruling, the presiding Judge, Donatus Okorowo held that the suit was incompetent and unjustifiable as it disclosed no reasonable cause of action.

Justice Okorowo noted that PDP failed woefully to disclose any injury it suffered in the substitution of running mates carried out by APC and Labour Party.

The Judge ruled that the issue of nomination and substitution are internal affairs of Parties and that Courts have no jurisdiction to dabble into them.
