A certain peasant farmer has allegedly approached the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, begging it not to allow Major General Muhammadu Buhari, to contest the March 28 presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
VanguardNg reported that the plaintiff, Sergin Onuka Ibe, from Abia State, through his lawyer Mr. U.O. Ukairo, wants the court to invoke its original powers and compel Buhari to not only withdraw from the presidential race, but to equally stop parading himself as a bonafide candidate for the poll.
He maintained that Buhari is not legally fit to vie for presidency in view of the pendency of a perjury charge against him.
Mr. Onuka further disclosed that Buhari violated the provision of section 31 of the Electoral Act by lying on oath about his educational qualifications.
He told the court that a personal investigation he conducted revealed that Buhari lacks the basic educational qualifications, adding that the information the 1st defendant supplied to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in his Form CF001, were false.
