Buhari's Certificate

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, yesterday, adjourned 10 separate suits that are seeking to disqualify the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Major-General Mohammadu Buhari, rtd, from participating in the forthcoming presidential election, for hearing today.

According to the ruling yesterday by the judge of the trial, Justice Ademola Adeniyi, he promised to hear the substantive suits and all the preliminary objections that were raised against them by both Buhari and the APC together.

Mr. Buhari, the APC and INEC were reportedly listed as first, second and third defendants, respectively.

The court disclosed that since all the suits were basically anchored on the same subject matter, which is the eligibility or otherwise of Buhari to contest in the forthcoming presidential election having allegedly supplied false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, with regards to his educational qualifications, it would be better to slate all of the matters for hearing on the same day.

Justice Adeniyi emphasized  that whatever judgment that is entered on the very first suit which was lodged before the court by Mr. Chukwunweike Okafor, would impact on all the other cases pending against the APC presidential candidate.
