Tinubu’s Canddacy Is Illegal – PDP

The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Debo Ologunagba, said the legality of the sponsorship of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu was voided according to the 2022 Electoral Act.

Ologunagba stressed that the recent court judgment that nullified the candidate of the APC in the recently concluded Osun State governorship election, Adgeboyega Oyetola, could be extended to the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

In a press briefing in Abuja, monitored on Facebook Live by newsmen, on Saturday, Ologunagba claimed that the illegality of the role of the APC Caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, who also doubled as both the state governor of Zamfara State, was illegal based on Section 183 of the Electoral Act.

He said, “Mai Mala Bala was assumed to be Chairman of the APC and the laws say that if you are an executive governor you cannot double as Chairman. This has led the court to nullify the candidacy of the Governor of Osun State, Oyetola.

“The same Mai Mala Buni was the caretaker chairman that sponsored the nomination of Tinubu. We are saying that if the process that sponsored the nomination of the presidential candidate of the APC was illegal, then the nomination of Bola Tinubu is illegal, null and void.”

When asked whether the PDP would go to a court of competent jurisdiction to establish his claim, he said the party had earlier advised the APC concerning the matter and had studied the recent judgment of the Oyetola case.

He, however, said, “the PDP will not announce whether we are going to court. When we want to go to court, you will know.”
