Bola Tinubu

The Action Alliance has officially withdrawn its petition against the President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at the pre-hearing of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Monday in Abuja. The head of the AA’s legal team, Oba Maduabuchi (SAN), who filed the petition on behalf of the 1st and 2nd petitioners, did not provide any reason for the withdrawal.

During the hearing, Maduabuchi made a formal application to withdraw the petition of the party. Before the announcement of the withdrawal, another lawyer had appeared as the representative of the AA.

However, Justice Haruna Tsammani subsequently struck out the petition after the respondents, including the All Progressives Congress (APC), the President-Elect, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), said they had no objection. The reasons behind the Action Alliance’s decision to withdraw their petition against Tinubu remain unclear at this time.
