Peter Obi Loses Petition To Quash Tinubu’s Election Over $460,000 Forfeiture in US Drug Case

Court proceedings still ongoing. LIVESTREAM on Arise.tv and on our YouTube channel.

The Presidential election petition court has struck out Labour party’s Peter Obi’s petition that called for the disqualification of Tinubu on the grounds of forfeiture of $460,000 over drug case.

The court said the case which was in a US district court involving Tinubu in the state of Illinois was a civil matter and not a criminal one.

It therefore added that it is a civil forfeiture without conviction.

The court also contended that the labour party had failed to show evidence that Tinubu was arraigned, tried, fined and sentenced for any criminal offence.
