Today's Headlines: Court dismisses suit against Shettima, Nigeria aircraft arrives at Abuja

Punch Newspapers reports that the Supreme Court overturned Kashim Shettima's expulsion as the All Progressives Congress vice presidential candidate for multiple nominating on Friday.

The Peoples Democratic Party lacked locus standi to bring the lawsuit, according to a five-member panel of the supreme court.

The panel concluded that the PDP is not an APC member.

According to Punch Newspapers, on Friday, a Nigeria Air plane touched down at Abuja International Airport.

The Nigeria Air aircraft is expected to arrive in the nation on Friday, May 26, 2023, according to the aviation minister, Hadi Sirika, who made the announcement last Wednesday while participating in a program on Channels TV.

According to The PUNCH, the domestic carriers operating in Nigeria under the auspices of the Airline Operators of Nigeria have criticized the departing minister's plans to start operating Nigeria Air on Friday despite a court injunction against the contentious scheme.
