The eligibility of President Muhammadu Buhari to seek for reelection in the upcoming 2019 elections took another twist as a man named Itsede Kingsley Okai, on Monday filed a lawsuit against Buhari before a Federal Court challenging the President’s suitability for the 2019 presidential election.
“I believe in the Nigerian judiciary and hopeful the court will end this debate once and for all”, Kingsley said.
Specifically, Kingsley is contending Buhari’s competence to run in 2019 elections over the recent alleged WAEC certificate scandal.
The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, some days ago declared anyone who doubts the claims of any candidate is free to engage in legal recourse.
Yakubu said, “As I promised on Friday, I have filed a suit against Buhari and INEC before the Federal High Court, Lagos to challenge his qualification to stand for the 2019 Presidential Election”.
The suit is yet to be assigned to any judge for the hearing.
