Atiku had through his counsel, Ozekhome, raised a preliminary objection to the suit to the effect that Keyamo lacks locus standi to file the suit, having not disclosed what he has suffered above other members of the public, especially as he filed the suit as a public officer using his public position.
He said the Plaintiff had not disclosed any wrong done to him by Atiku, or what damage he had suffered, describing him as ‘a meddlesome interloper’. Atiku, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 election, also argued that the suit disclosed no reasonable cause of action.
