The presidential election petition tribunal in Abuja has dismissed the suit filed by the Hope Democratic Party(HDP) presidential candidate, Mr Ambrose Aworu, seeking to stop the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29th.
The lead judgement which was read by Justice Joseph Ikeychi, expelled the suit, because it lacks merit.
The respondents which includes, President Buhari, the All Progressive Congress (APC), independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In the application filed by the HDP said it would be unfair and unjust to inaugurate President Muhammadu Buhari, because the validity of the election that made him the president has been challenged in the tribunal.
The party had prayed the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammed from swearing and administering oath of office and oath of allegiance to the President, until the action of the court against Buhari is determined.
The two petitioners are currently challenging the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari, due to the ground of non-compliance of electoral laws and have dully saved, Buhari, APC and INEC, despite hearing of their petition against them.
