Supreme Court of Nigeria has fixed May 26 for the judgement on the alleged double nomination of Vice President-Elect, Kashim Shettima, filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The judgement, slated three days before the presidential inauguration, would determine whether Mr Shettima would be sworn in as the vice president or if his candidacy would be truncated.

If affirmed, Mr Shettima’s disqualification could truncate the swearing in of Bola Tinubu as President since they ran a joint ticket.

Senior lawyer Joe Agim told the Court that the All Progressives Congress(APC) had earlier admitted Mr Shettima’s double nomination at the appellate court, but the APC denied the allegation.

Mr Agim, citing a case involving Uche Nwosu against ADP as precedent, asserted that his respondents did not deserve to speak, let alone make any argument, over the alleged double nomination.
