The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Debo Ologunagba, said the legality of the sponsorship of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was voided according to the 2022 Electoral Act.

Ologunagba stressed that the recent court judgment that nullified the candidate of the APC in the recently concluded Osun State governorship election, Adegboyega Oyetola, could be extended to the candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

In a press briefing in Abuja, Ologunagba claimed that the illegality of the role of the APC Caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, who also doubled as both the state governor of Zamfara State, was illegal based on Section 183 of the Electoral Act.

When asked whether the PDP would go to a court of competent jurisdiction to establish his claim, he said the party had earlier advised the APC concerning the matter and had studied the recent judgment of the Oyetola case.

Oloogunagba said the moves made by Atiku to reconcile Wike to the party have shown Nigerians that Atiku was a unifier.
