We’ve Asked Court To Disqualify Tinubu—PDP.
With just 32 days to the 2023 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council said that it has asked a court of competent jurisdiction in the country to disqualify the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, from the presidential race.
The PDP presidential campaign spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, who made this known in a media conference on Monday in Abuja, said Tinubu’s forfeiture of his funds to the US government over drug trafficking allegation was an indication that the former Lagos State governor committed infractions that should disqualify him from running for an election in Nigeria.
SaharaReporters has reported how court papers from the US linked Tinubu to a drug trafficking case and his eventual forfeiture of the sum of $460,000 to the US government.
