The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has struck out the petition of the All Progressive Congress party against Atiku Abubakar over is alleged non-Nigerian citizenship.
Speaking on the verdict in its 6th ruling earlier on Monday, the court said its power does not include determining the qualification of a petitioner in an election dispute.
It said its powers was to determine whether a person elected to the office of the President was validly elected and not to query the qualification of the petitioners to have contested the election, whose outcome was being queried.
The court said the APC ought to have filed a cross-petition if it sought to challenge the qualification of the 1st petitioner (Atiku) to have contested the election.
