Olanipekun’s Stirring Defense of Tinubu’s Landmark Electoral Triumph Presented in Captivating Written Address to Tribunal

The counsel to President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima, Wole Olanipekun, SAN, has asked the Presidential Election Petition Court to dismiss the petition of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his party.

Olanipekun, in his final written address against the petition of Obi and LP, described the arguments and testimonies of witnesses presented by the challengers as “frivolous, bogus and based on hearsay”.

In his written address, he urged the court to dismiss the petition as totally lacking in merit, substance and bona fide.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria also argued that the “remote” contention of the petitioners that his client’s election should be cancelled for not scoring 25 percent or one-quarter of the votes recorded in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is not backed by any fact known to the law as the use of “and” in the constitution is conjunctive and not disjunctive.

The counsel to President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima, Wole Olanipekun, SAN, has vehemently called for the dismissal of the petition filed by Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP) regarding the presidential election. In his final written address to the Presidential Election Petition Court, Olanipekun criticized the arguments and testimonies presented by Obi and LP, describing them as baseless and unsupported by evidence. He urged the court to reject the petition, emphasizing its lack of merit and substance.

Olanipekun further argued against the petitioners’ claim that his client’s election should be nullified due to their failure to secure 25 percent of the votes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). According to Olanipekun, this contention is unfounded based on constitutional interpretation. He states that the use of “and” in the constitution implies a conjunctive connection, not a disjunctive one, rendering the petitioners’ claim unsupported by legal facts.
