The dismissal of President Muhammadu Buhari’s suit against section 84(12) of the Electoral Act of 2022 dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

The Saturday Punch says Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the south-west has asked for the positions of the senate president and secretary-general of the federation if the party wins the 2023 presidential election. The newspaper reports Peter Obi of Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) are yet to agree on who will be the presidential candidate and running mate in their merger talks.

The Nation says the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released the candidates’ list for senatorial positions across the country. The newspaper reports that PDP national assembly caucus has intensified lobbying of aggrieved lawmakers.

The Guardian says the supreme court has thrown out the suit of Buhari against section 84(12) of the Electoral Act of 2022. The newspaper reports that Tukur Buratai, former chief of army staff, has denied having bulletproof cars or home in Wuse.

Saturday Independent explains why there is no female presidential candidate for the 2023 elections. The newspaper says the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) recovered cash and armoured cars at the residence of a military contractor.

Saturday Sun says gunmen went on a rampage in Benue, Kogi and the federal capital territory. The newspaper reports that Chris Okotie, founder of the Household of God Church, said Nigeria will break up if he does not succeed Buhari.
