All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate in the February 25, 2023 election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu have asked the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, to dismiss the petition brought against the declaration of Tinubu as winner of the election.

The party and its candidate yesterday argued that the petition filed by the Allied People’s Movement APM was worthless as it disclosed no reasonable cause of action.

In their separate motions on notice, APC and Tinubu told the tribunal that the petition was incompetent on various grounds and does not deserve being given precious time by the tribunal.

A legal luminary, Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) who filed the motion on behalf of APC said that the APM has no legs upon which its petition can stand.

Fagbemi insisted in the motion that the election being challenged by APM was lawfully conducted and a clear winner declared in line with the provisions of the law.
