Court Adjourns Suits Seeking Buhari’s Disqualification to March 24

A Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed March 24 for ruling in the suits seeking to disqualify the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Muhammadu Buhari from the March 28 presidential election.

At the resumed hearing on Thursday, counsel to Buhari, Wole Olanipekun (SAN) brought an application challenging the mode of service of the originating processes on Buhari. Buhari insisted that all the suits were targeted at stopping the presidential election.

He maintained that no court has the power to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission ( ?INEC) from conducting presidential election on March 28.

But counsel to one of the plaintiffs, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) urged the court to expedite hearing on the matter to enable it to determine the fate of Buhari before the presidential election.
