The Court of Appeal in Abuja has scheduled a hearing for today, Friday, in a fresh petition attempting to prevent the inauguration of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on May 29.
The Court ordered that the case titled CA/ABJ/CV/259/2023, which seeks to prevent Tinubu from being sworn in as Nigeria’s next President on May 29, be heard without delay by 3 p.m. today.
To clear the coast for the suit’s hearing, the Appellate Court on May 18 heard Tinubu’s joinder motion, argued by Chief Wole Olanipekun, SAN, and granted Tinubu’s request, joining him as the 4th respondent, alongside President Muhammadu Buhari and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The court immediately ordered that Buhari, AGF, INEC, and Tinubu, as the first to fourth respondents, file their Respondents’ Briefs and serve the Appellants by 10 a.m. this morning after enlisting Tinubu in the dispute on the grounds that he had interests that may be harmed.
The Appeal Court further ordered that the Appellants file their Reply Brief and serve the Respondents by 12 noon today, and set the case for hearing at 3 p.m. today.
