The duo challenged the election result alongside candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) but the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal struck out their appeals.

The trio filed appeals at the Supreme Court, which heard the matter on Monday.

However, Chukwuma Umeh, APM counsel, applied to withdraw the suit after the apex court failed to grant its request to void Tinubu’s election.

But the PDP and LP continued with their cases.

The 7-member panel led by Justice John Okoro adjourned the matter after the arguments of lawyers of respective parties.

“This appeal is reserved for judgement until a date to be communicated to parties,” Okoro held.
