Betta Edu:Case against Senator Kashim Shettima Lacks Merit to Contest Asiwaju Tinubu's Candidacy

The Supreme Court is set to deliver its verdict on the disqualification case lodged against Senator Kashim Shettima, who faced accusations of running for two positions simultaneously as the APC Senatorial candidate and Vice Presidential candidate during the 2023 general election. Betta Edu, the APC National Women Leader, has expressed a lack of concern regarding the court's ruling. She made it clear that they have a solid understanding of the forthcoming court decision. Based on the proceedings observed from the Appeal Court to the Supreme Court, they believe the case lacks the necessary grounds to challenge Bola Tinubu's candidacy. Edu also mentioned that the Tinubu camp is fully prepared for the upcoming inauguration of the President-elect.

Edu confidently stated, "If you closely follow the entire legal process, starting from the lower court to the appeal court and finally the Supreme Court, you will comprehend that this case holds no weight. The judgment to be delivered tomorrow does not trouble us because we are already aware of the outcome. We are certain that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will be sworn in as the President of Nigeria on May 29th. The inauguration preparations are already underway."

According to Edu, the APC National Women Leader, the party remains unperturbed by the impending judgment as they firmly believe that the case against Senator Shettima lacks credibility. She emphasized that the legal proceedings, spanning from the initial court to the appellate court and now the Supreme Court, have reinforced their confidence in Bola Tinubu's candidacy. Additionally, Edu revealed that preparations for Tinubu's presidential inauguration have already commenced, signalling their anticipation of his assumption of office on May 29th.
