Court strikes out eligibility suit against President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, March 22, 2015, struck out the eligibility suit brought against President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.
His decision comes after plaintiffs in the two of the three pending suits challenging the eligibility of the President-elect to contest in the March 28, 2015, presidential election withdrew the suits.
Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) who is representing one of the plaintiffs, told the judge on Wednesday that his client decided to withdraw his suit to afford the incoming government time to focus on the “enormous task” of governance.
When the second case which was filed by Max Ozoaka was called, his lawyer, Dr. Chike Amobi, also adduced similar grounds for withdrawing the suit.
However, there is still a pending eligibility suit against Buhari, the one filed by Ayakeme Whiskey (FHC/ABJ/CS/68/15).
No date has been fixed for the hearing in the pending suit.
