The PDP requested the court to decide whether, by the consolidated translation from Section 142(1) of the constitution, Section 29(1), 31, and 33 of the Electoral Act 2022, and INEC’s plan, Tinubu and Obi are limited by the accommodation of Masari and Okupe individually as their running mates in the 2023 General Election.

Talking regarding this situation, Labor Party’s legal counselor, Alex Ejesieme, affirmed the suit saying: “I have gotten the cycles and we are recording a reaction as of now,” he said.

Both Peter Obi and Bola Ahmed Tinubu had reported ‘placeholders’ as their running mates; Okupe and Masari separately.
