FCT, Abuja – The Hope Democratic Party (HDP) has asked the Supreme Court to sack President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The National Coordinator of the HDP, Alhaji Anwal Ibrahim, disclosed this in a press statement issued to newsmen in Abuja, Monday, December 4.

The opposition party claimed that by the doctrine of ‘Lis Pendens’, it is not yet the turn of Tinubu to occupy the Office of President of Nigeria.

According to HP, the doctrine of Lis Pendens has rendered the 2023 presidential election, as well as its outcome, illegal and an exercise in futility.

Why Supreme Court should sack Tinubu as President

According to the statement, Tinubu had on May 18, sought and got the Supreme Court’s permission to be joined as an interested party in Owuru’s suit seeking to be declared as the adjudged winner of the 2019 election.

Ibrahim said Tinubu ought not to have been sworn in as president having joined the pending suit on the subject of alleged mandate usurpation by Buhari.

“There is no doubt that the present act of self-help and claim to occupy the office of the president by any of the parties in this action is an act of self-help and violates the law and the doctrine of Lis Pendens”

He added that:

“The implication of this by-law is that the 2023 presidential election and its outcome which Tinubu was aware of before joining the suit is subsumed and dependent on the outcome of the existing legal proceedings on the subject of the already adjudged and yet to be served constitutional mandate of Owuru to serve out the term of office of the president of Nigeria as required by law.”
