JUST IN: Suit challenging Buhari’s academic qualification Rejected by Appeal Court

Buhari

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has rejected an appeal challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s academic qualification to stand for the last presidential election.

Justice Mohammed Idris, who read the lead judgment of a three-man panel, upheld an earlier judgment by a Federal High Court in Abuja, dismissing the suit on the grounds that it was statute-barred and robbed the court of jurisdiction to entertain the suit.

The court held that issues raised in the case have become statute barred, the suit having not been filed atthe trial court, within the 14 days the cause of action arose as stipulated under section 285(9) of the Nigerian Constitution.
