A justice of the apex court, Inyang Okoro, stated this while delivering judgment in PDP’s appeal seeking to void the election of President-elect Bola Tinubu on the grounds that his running mate, Kashim Shettima, was guilty of double nomination.

The five-member panel threw out the appeal and held that the appellant had no locus standi to institute the suit.

Okoro held that the appellant tried to mislead the Supreme Court, by claiming that the lower court found that there was indeed a double nomination and slammed PDP’s attempt to use social media as “appalling and unprofessional”.

Okoro said: “Using the social media to terrorize and bully the justices of the supreme court by the appellant is appalling and unprofessional.

“The appeal is without merit and is dismissed. I abide by the award of cost in the lead judgement
