Court To Decide Buhari's Certificate Saga February 7th
#1
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja division has adjourned
proceedings in the suit seeking the disqualification of
President Muhammadu Buhari from participating in the
February 16 presidential election till February 7, 2019.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed fixed the date following a request
by the plaintiffs’ counsel for time to respond to the second
defendant’s counter-affidavit served on him on Thursday
evening.
The plaintiffs, Kalu Agu, Labaran Ismail and Hassy El-Kuris, in
the suit, are alleging that the President Buhari lied in his Form
CF 001 submitted to the Independent National Electoral
Commission (INEC), regarding his educational qualification
and certificates.
In the suit filed on November 5, 2018, they are therefore
seeking an order of the court to disqualifying Buhari from
presenting himself and or contesting for president in the 2019
election.
Defendants in the suit filed on behalf of the plaintiff by Okpai
Ukiro, has President Buhari, the All Progressives Congress
(APC) and INEC as 1st, 2nd and 3rd defendants respectively.
When the matter was called for hearing, plaintiffs’ counsel,
Godwin Haruna, who held brief for Ukpai Ukiro, informed the
court that the matter was adjourned at the last sitting to
January 21 for the hearing of all pending applications but was
further adjourned to today January 31, since the court did not
sit.
He, however, said he would be asking the court for a short
adjournment to enable him to respond to the second
defendant’s notice of preliminary objections which he said
was filed on January 31 and served on him around 4.30pm.
Haruna who recalled that the processes were served on the
APC since November 21 and they just responded only today,
asked the court for a cost of N100k against the APC for
foisting the adjournment on the court.
He said the defendant had been in court since but never
bothered to file its response.
While counsel to President Buhari, Abdullahi Abubakar, did
not object to the request for adjournment, counsel to APC,
Tayo Lasaki, who said he was not opposed to the
adjournment, however, said he was opposing the request
for cost against him.
Lasaki said since the second defendant was challenging the
jurisdiction of the court to hear the matter, it did not matter
when the issue was raised.
He also argued that the request for adjournment was made
by the plaintiffs and not him, adding that although the second
defendant was appearing in the matter for the first time, they
were, however, prepared to go on with the matter if the
plaintiffs were ready.

This is just ridiculous. Are they still on this nonsense? How can a retired Army General not have a certificate? So they skipped him when issuing certificates to officers during his passing out parade? I bet most Nigerian don't even know that the Nigerian Defence Acedemy issues bsc certificates to passing outofficers and is rated as one of the top 10 best universities in Nigeria.
The more you walk, the close you get.
