Some legal news in for you......and it concerns the President-Elect.
''COURT TERMINATES HEARING ON PRESIDENT ELECT MUHAMMADU BUHARI’S ELIGIBILITY SUIT''
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has terminated further hearing on two separate suits challenging the eligibility of president elect Muhammdu Buhari in the recently concluded presidential election.
Presiding judge Justice Ademola Adeniyi struck out the suits after they were withdrawn by the plaintiffs Chukwunweike Okafor and Max Okafor through separate notices of discontinuance they filed before the high court.
The plaintiffs, who spoke through their respective lawyers, Chief Mike Ozehkome, SAN, and Dr. Chike Amobi, said they decided to withdraw the matter in order to allow the President-elect, General Buhari, to effectively run the affairs of the nation without distractions.
The plaintiffs in their suits claimed that Buhari’s failure to submit his certificate of academic qualifications contravened relevant sections of the 1999 Constitution and the Electoral Act, 2010.
