Supreme Court Fixes Judgement Date For PDP’s Suit Against Vice-President-Elect, Shettima

The Supreme Court has fixed May 26 for the judgement on the alleged double nomination of vice president-elect Kashim Shettima filed by the People’s 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.

Meanwhile, preparations are in full gear in the APC camp for the presidential inauguration that would see Mr Shettima take the vice-presidential oath of office on May 29 unless the Supreme Court’s judgement says otherwise.
