As the anticipation builds for the Presidential Elections Tribunal Court’s ruling on the February 25, 2023, presidential election, with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) represented by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the Labour Party of Peter Obi, as well as the entire Nigerian populace, one of the contenders in the election, Prince Adewole Ebenezer Adebayo, has suggested that both the petitioners and Nigerians begin focusing on preparations for the 2027 general elections.

According to Adebayo, the petitions before the tribunal judges are notably straightforward, marking them as the most uncomplicated since the advent of democracy in 1999. Using his official Twitter handle @Pres_Adebayo, Adebayo stated that these petitions lack merit and have been inadequately presented.

He went on to share, “This year’s election petitions are the easiest to dispense with since 1999. No need for any judicial acrobatics. They fall within clear jurisprudence and well-established precedents. Obi/Labour vs Tinubu/INEC will be dismissed in limine; ditto for Atiku/PDP vs Tinubu/INEC. These petitions lack merit and are poorly presented, abysmally unproved, and comically argued. APM’s half-hearted petition is a pre-election mongrel with no pedigree in electoral litigation. The judges are not to blame. All opposition elements should prepare for 2027 elections.”
