Justice Mohammed Yunusa of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday, April 8, dismissed a suit seeking to stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode, from contesting in the April 11 governorship election.

The judge stated that the plaintiffs, Olorunfemi Oluwatosin and Dada Joseph of the APC, had no locus standi to institute the action, buttressing that they failed to establish any reasonable cause of action to sustain their prayers.

“None of the plaintiffs in the instant suit is an aspirant to be conferred with locus standi,”  Yunusa held, as he dismissed the suit.

The plaintiffs had challenged their alleged disenfranchisement in the party primary that produced Ambode in December 2014.

They thereby approached the court, seeking an order to restrain the Independent National Electoral Commission from allowing APC to field any candidate for the April 11 governorship election in Lagos.
