The president had on Wednesday, appealed against a previous ruling of the court dismissing his preliminary objection to the suit filed by Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, an Abuja-based lawyer.

Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe had in his suit argued that President Buhari was not qualified to run for president because he did not possess the minimum qualification to run for the office.

He is also arguing that Buhari did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961.

In order to defend the suit, President Buhari hired 13 Senior lawyers led by Wole Olanipekun (SAN).
