The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress emerged victorious during the 2023 presidential election in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress defeated the likes of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
However, it should be said that the Labour Party have already announced their intention to challenge the result of the presidential election in court. According to a report by Channel Television, the APC has appointed twelve lawyers to defend the mandate of Bola Tinubu in court. This report is on the official Facebook page of Channel Television.
According to the same source, lawyers like Wole Olanipekun and Lateef Fagbemi have been hired by the APC. The Channel Television also reports that Rotimi Oguneso has also been picked by the All Progressives Congress. It is important to point out that all these lawyers are senior advocates of Nigeria. This information has also been confirmed by the Punch Newspaper.
