2023 presidency: Lawyers sue INEC, AGF, others , want Atiku, Tinubu, Obi disqualified

Three Abuja-based lawyers have instituted a legal action against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The lawyers file a suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

They prayed the court to issue an order stopping the electoral body from accepting the nomination of Bola Tinubu, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, as presidential candidates in the 2023 general elections.

The lawyers, amongst other things, predicated their suit on the illegality of the process that produced Tinubu, Atiku and Obi as candidate of their political parties.

Plaintiffs in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/1004/2022 are Ataguba Aboje, Oghenovo Otemu and Ahmed Yusuf.

Apart from INEC other defendants in the suit instituted on June 29 are; the Attorney General of the Federation ( AGF), All Progressives Congress ( APC), People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) and Labour Party (LP) as 1st to 5th respectively.
