share on:

According to Saharareporters, a Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the service of court documents on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, in relation to a suit seeking to among others; restrain him from participating in the February 14 election.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola on Monday requested a substituted service of the court documents on Buhari and the Independent National Electoral Commission after hearing the plaintiff’s application to that effect.

The suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/14/2015, was filed by Max Ozoaka.

The plaintiff raised eight questions for the court’s determination and prayed for among others, an order disqualifying Buhari from contesting or participating in the election.

According to the plaintiff’s contention, the INEC FORM CF 001 which the APC candidate submitted to the electoral body was incomplete because he allegedly failed to accompany the form with all relevant academic credentials.

Ozoaka also faulted some information contained in other documents he possessed including Buhari’s voter’s card.

The plaintiff wants the court to restrain INEC from permitting Buhari to participate in the presidential election on February 14 or any other date the 2nd defendant (INEC) may fix.”
