The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has dismissed a suit seeking to stop the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari filed by the Hope Democratic Party (HDP) and its Presidential Candidate, Ambrose Aworu.
A judgement delivered by Justice Joseph Ikyechi at the tribunal dismissed the application for lacking merit.
The Respondents in the suit which include the President, his party the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) faulted the application and asked the tribunal to dismiss it for lacking merit.
The suit aoolied by HDP claimed that it will be unfair and unjust to inaugurate President Buhari for a second term because the election that produced him has been challenged at the tribunal.
The suit also asked for an order stopping the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Tanko Mohammad from inaugurating or administering the Oath of Office and Oath of Allegiance on him (Buhari) until all court actions against him are determined.
The two petitioners claim to have dully served the President, INEC and the APC despite notice of hearing of their petition against his election which they are challenging on the ground of non- compliance with the electoral laws
