The Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC, sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, consolidated the three different petitions that are seeking to nullify the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.
A five-member panel of the court led by Justice Haruna Tsammani, in a unanimous decision, dismissed objections the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, raised against the merger of the petitions.
The court held that the Justice of the cases demanded that they should be consolidated and dealt with as one petition since they all relate to the same election.
