Three Abuja-based lawyers on Wednesday in Abuja dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before a Federal High Court seeking an order against the electoral body not to accept the nomination of Bola Tinubu, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi, as presidential candidates in the 2023 general elections.

Njenje Media News reports that the bone of contention of the lawyers amongst others is that Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi were unlawfully nominated by their respective 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.
