Any re-run election should be between Me and Atiku - Tinubu tells Court
President Bola Tinubu has appealed to the justices of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PREPEC) in Abuja to exclude the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, in the event of any rerun presidential election, claiming that only he and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, are constitutionally qualified to recontest. 

Tinubu argued that if the justices void the February 25, 2023, presidential election, Obi and his party will not be qualified to recontest.

Obi's counsel countered Tinubu's argument by urging the five-member panel of the PREPEC not to subvert the will of the people as expressed in the February 25 presidential election. The counsel stressed that they should sack Tinubu without further delay.

The matter before the PREPEC is centered on the eligibility of candidates to recontest in the event of a rerun presidential election. 

President Tinubu has argued that only he and Atiku are eligible to recontest, while Obi's counsel has countered that the will of the people should be upheld. The PREPEC will make a ruling on the matter in due course.
