The Supreme Court has dismissed a suit by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the alleged double Nomination of Kassim Shettima, the Vice President-elect.

The Apex court on Friday agreed with the lower courts that the PDP lacks the locus Standi to institute such a case.

Justice Adamu Jauro who read the Judgement, noted that the PDP acted as meddlesome Interloper and a busy body as it is an internal affair of the APC.

A sum of two million naira (N2,000,000) was awarded against the PDP, even as the suit was dismissed for lacking in merit.

The Justices further held that the attitude of the appellant (PDP), amounts to misleading the court, describing the move as “sad”.
