PDP Sues Buhari Over Presence Of Nigerien Governors At His Rally 0 0
GIST -  PDP Sues Buhari Over Presence Of Nigerien Governors At His Rally
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has filed a suit
against President Muhammadu Buhari over the
attendance of two Nigerien governors at his rally in
Issa Moussa of Zinder and Zakiri Umar of Maradi, the
governors, attended the rally which held on January 31.
In a suit, the opposition party asked a federal high court
in Abuja to determine whether the presence of governors
of the neighbouring countries is not a violation of
Nigerian laws.
Quoting section 12 of the electoral act 2010, the
opposition party argued that only Nigerian citizens are
eligible to participate in elections in Nigeria.
“The substantive matter in this suit seeks an order of this
honourable court, seeking to direct the 1st-3rd defendants
to preclude and ensure that foreigners/aliens do not
participate in the 2019 general elections,” the suit read.
“The substantive suit is a pre-election matter as it raises
issues that ought to be determined before the 2019
general elections are held. The foregoing has created a
situation of real urgency.
“A DECLARATION  that, having regard to the provisison of
Section 12 of the Electoral Act 2-10 (as amended),
foreigners and/ or aliens cannot partivipate either directly
or indirectly in the General Electionms of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria.
“A DECLARATION that the participation of the 2 Nigerien
governors in the 4th defendant’s campaign rally is
contrary to Nigerian law and public policy."
Joined in the suit were the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC), Nigeria Immigration
Service, Abdulrahman Dambazau, minister for interior;
and the APC.
The suit was filed on behalf of the opposition party by
Adedamola Fanokun, a lawyer, on February 8.
