Seven State governments controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – namely Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, Taraba and Sokoto, which filed a suit against the Federal Government at the Supreme Court, challenging the declaration of All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President-elect, have discontinued the suit.
The Notice of Discontinuance was signed by their lawyer, Mr. Mike Ozekhome SAN Friday.
No reason was given for the withdrawal but pundits say same may not be unconnected with the fact that the suit was procedurally strange and a horrible abuse of Court’s process.
Some analysts also hold that the institution ab initio, was a demonstration of sheer desperation.
