The Federal High Court, Abuja has struck out the suit by the Peoples Democratic Party seeking disqualification of governorship and National Assembly candidates of the Labour Party and Young Progressives Party, in the 2023 general elections.
The suit was on Monday thrown out by the court for want of diligent prosecution.
In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1899/2022, PDP sought an order from the court nullifying the published names of candidates of the two parties.
The party also sought another order compelling the Independent National Electoral Commission to delete the names of the published candidates.
Furthermore, PDP applied for another order nullifying the result sheets of the purported primaries on grounds of being illegal, invalid and of no effect whatsoever.
The party had alleged that LP and YPP failed t conduct primary elections before the submission of their candidates’ names to the electoral umpire.
