The PEPT in Abuja has ruled against allegations of a criminal conviction of President Bola Tinubu in the U.S. The court in its verdict has determined that the $460,000 fine imposed on Tinubu was related to civil service and not a criminal conviction.

According to Justice Haruna Tsammani, who led the group of Judges, the fine did not meet the criteria for disqualifying Ahmed Tinubu from the Presidential election held on February 25.

The court also noted that there was no evidence to prove that Ahmed Tinubu was indicted, tried or convicted of any criminal offence in the USA. The PEPT also cited a letter from the Inspector General of Police and a response from the US Embassy confirming the absence of a criminal record for Tinubu.

Consequently, the court dismissed the petition filed by the Labour Party and Peter Obi to nullify President Ahmed Tinubu’s election.
