Buhari escapes disqualification as court adjourns eligibility suit to April 22

Muhammadu Buhari

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has put paid to speculations that the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, might be barred from participating in Saturday’s presidential election.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola Wednesday morning adjourned the eligibility suit seeking to stop Mr. Buhari till April 22 and 23 for hearing, meaning there is no more obstacle on the APC candidate’s path.

The hearing will come up about a month after the election.

The court however dismissed the applications filed by two persons seeking to be joined as defendants in the suit. One of the applicants is a pro-democracy activist, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa.

There had been apprehension across the country that the opposition candidate might be disqualified, with his party, the APC suggesting there were pressures on the court to bar Mr. Buhari.

Mr. Buhari had on Tuesday failed in his bid to stop the Court from examining the merit of the consolidated suit challenging his eligibility for the March 28 presidential election.

When the suit came up for hearing Tuesday, Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, and counsel to one of the plaintiffs, Chukwunweike Okafor, asked the court to reject the applications by Mr. Adegboruwa and another person to be joined, saying the court does not need them as parties in the suit to determine the merit of the case.

On Wednesday, the court agreed with Mr. Ozekhome’s argument, ruling that the applicants had no business in the case.

One of the suits against Mr. Buhari was instituted by Mr. Okafor challenging Mr. Buhari’s eligibility to contest the presidential election.

He claimed that the APC presidential candidate perjured by allegedly claiming to have attached his academic qualifications to the INEC form he filled even though he did not do so.

The APC and INEC were joined as defendants in the suit.

The party and its candidate protested with separate preliminary objections to the hearing of the suit, arguing that they were not served the court processes as required by the principle of natural justice and the rule of the court.

Although, the court granted Mr. Okafor the order to serve the process through substituted means, the APC flag-bearer, through his counsel, Wole Olanipekun, brought an application to set the order aside, contending that as far as he was concerned, no suit exists before the court for determination.

The APC and INEC also argued that even if they assumed that the court papers were properly served on them, the matter before the court was that of perjury, which according to them, was a criminal offence.

They contended that a criminal case could not be commenced by way of originating summons.

In his ruling Tuesday, Mr. Ademola said the court would hear both the objections and the substantive suit together.

    Shame on Ozekhome and his co-travellers! It is just so sad that our society abound with men endowed with intellect not necessarily wisdom but divert such to ignoble purposes rather than for them to toe a noble path. History will never be kind to such men who are against the progress of Nigeria as a united country.

    • Man_Enough

      i am especially disappointed in osekhome. he is a fake activist. how i wish the kidnappers held on to him forever.

  • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

    Escape indeed.
    He needs not be disqualified.
    He just need to be shown to have committed perjury that’s all.
    He will contest the election. Will he win is the question.
    He already has a great precedent of loss.
    Not a must he will lose a fourth time.
    But then 3 losses is something maen.

    The last straw has broken the camel’s back. I hope all those pigs mouthing off yesterday will show up now or forever remain silent. There is no case in Buhari’s qualification to run for President of Nigeria, if any phantom cases exist, it’s perjury which falls under criminal court’s jurisdiction. Nigerians have only 48hrs more to endure of the PDP and the evil crook from Outoke. The last “Ace” in their deck of tarot cards is the release of our missing Chibok virgins, then claim Dumbo has “rescued” them. Odeku, jare!

    Only if Nigerians could think. We are the real losers in this political games. How many of us can get Billion contract from GEJ like Gani Adam, who will use use it for his selfish lifestyle. How many of us can get 10 private jets like Gej… Doyn okupe said we are not qualified to have a brand new Train cars, but he can have 4 new bullets proof mercedes cars costing half a million dollars each. If only we nigerians could thinks and vote right this saturday for our future and the future of our children. letl vote out PDP so that APC can be scared of us that if they do not perform after 4 years, they will be voted out and replace with new party that will listen to us. We nigerians dont ask for much.. All we ask for is good road, good hospitals , job provision, and security. Ethopian just luch their light rail costing 477 million dollars, all brand new train with A/C. Our govt spent 12 billions dollars for cans (agolo) called train for us to ride on. Okupe said we are not Americans we dont deserve new ones. Dubai is a desert..their police officer are using half a million dollar car each to patrol the city. Our police are fighting for new uniforms and shoes… we believed GEJ when he says he had no shoes, not knowing that he is worst than 10 corrupt govt combined. He had shoes and 10 jets to play with now. First time in nigeria history, President personally distrbuting loots money across the country by himself. Only if nigerians could think this saturday.

  • samshindeen mohammed

    GEJ should respect himself and allow Nigerians to go the way they want. Nigerians gave him all he needed in 2011 but he failed them, thinking he can use division to spread our heads but time is changing, Nigerians are becoming wiser and more intelligent.
    I am pretty sure if A PC/Buhari takes over they will be mindful of how they came in and will work for their stay in power as no manipulation will work, power belongs to the people and nobody will joke with Nigerians anymore and this is the change we are yearning for, its not only about Jona and his PDP or Buhari and APC its about performance and delivery of services to the electorates.
    Nigeria must move forward, I am now believing God will deliver this nation from the shackles of the devils of corruption, sentiments and divisiveness.
    Nigeria is marching towards change .

    • Scarth

      One of the most honest contributions so far………thanks man!

    • Plan and How

      Given the later part of your piece, I am surprised you believe GEJ instigated the cases against Buhari. Secondly, there was a case against GEJ eligibility but none accused APC or Buhari of sponsoring it.
      I believe as a democracy we should operate by the rule of law. If you are dissatisfied with anything you only seek redress through allowable by law. I urge to read the comment above yours from @Marquise.

  • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

    Excellent. The law can now take its natural course. Now no one can accuse the judge of rushing judgement. This issue is deeper than APC online minions think. It’s not stopping him from contesting that should be their worry..but if he truly has that certificate.
    The long arm of the law might appear slow..but it’s reach is far.
    These APC people love to live for the moment without thinking ahead.
    What is unknown is when Baba will cross the bridge..but he must cross it..he can run but he can’t hide..

  • sherif A

    Buhari Promised to make the Naira equal in Value to the Dollar
    and some people says its impossible:
    Here are the options he may explore to easily achieve that goal:
    1. Any well educated person who hs read wide knows dt
    bringing back d dollar to d same value with d naira is nt even a
    difficult task. Have u pple forgotten so quickly when Chukwuma
    Soludo wnted to do it whn he wz d CBN governor under Yar’dua
    tru reconstruction? For ur infor, Ghana recently did d same
    reconstruction of its Cedis and today, d Ghana Cedi is one of d
    most valuable currencies on Africa continent. Its unfortunate d
    kind of graduates Nigeria is producing who pass tru d
    educational institutions and come out as mere educated
    2. Buhari can still make d dollar equal to d naira tru gov policy
    and executive pronouncements.For dos saying d US gvt will nt
    allow it, ds hs nothing to do with d US gvt. In fact, d USA gvt
    will even encourage same bcos it will improve America’s exports
    to Nigeria. Dont ask me how. Just go and study DEVALUATION
    Hs any one of u cared to ask why d US gvt will always hv issues
    with China dt America will even send envoy to beg China
    anytime China wnts to devalue its currency? Find out why
    3.Buhari can also increase d value of d naira tru a cut in
    importation by reviving and building import substitution
    industries. Today, its on record dt Nigeria spends over $20b
    annually on importation of refined fuel alone. Dts abt one quarter
    of all our annual foreign exchange earning. Now, imagine wht
    will happen if d refineries ar rehabilitated, new ones built and
    Nigeria stops totally importation of refined fuel. Dt mean $20b
    of our foreign exchange earning will b saved and u can imagine
    d impact of dt on exchange rate. Dt means more dollars will b
    available chasing fewer naira. Now imagine whr many refineries
    ar operating dt Nigeria begins to export even refined fuel lik
    Saudi Arabia, UAE, Brazil. I bet u d naira will even pass d dollar
    in value. Its all abt d political will to do it.
    Do u know dt Nigeria represents d highest importer of
    generators in d whole world. Dis is also another serious cause
    of our exchange woes. If Buhari can build d power stations
    sincerely and increase our generation and distribution capacity
    to 20,000 megawatts, d days of generator importation will end
    and dt also means lesser demand for d dollars and by
    implications, a rise in d value of d naira.
    D moment Buhari makes d economic environment become
    friendly tru provison of electricity, effective and affordable
    railway system, construction of refineries etc, all d import
    substitution industries will wake up and d moment dias lesser or
    no import of tooth pick, fuel, rice, cars etc, d dollar will just
    crash lik a pack of cards.

    Hi, Do you know General Muhammad Buhari (GMB) has been
    ruling Nigeria
    since February 14th 2015? Here are the facts.
    GMB made Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ) reduce petrol pump
    price from
    N97 which Nigerians have suffered for over 4 years to N87 per
    litre. (Election
    GMB made GEJ to fight Boko haram to standstill in 6 weeks which
    he has
    refused to fight in the past 5yrs. (Election matters!)
    GMB made GEJ reduce electricity tariff by 50% (even though there
    is no light
    in nigeria) which he did not do in the past 5yrs.(Election matters!)
    GMB made GEJ beg for endorsement. (Election matters! )
    GMB made GEJ to visit traditional rulers ,Obas and emirs those he
    forgot in
    the past 5yrs (Election matters !)
    5 days from today, we would be CHANGING 5yrs of corruption,
    and ineptitude in governance. I just can’t wait!

    “Anyone who will disqualify a presidential candidate on the eve of an election can only have one and only one purpose for that: to trigger chaos and pandemonium across the country” — says Lai Mohammed (in today’s PUNCH).
    This is a most irresponsible statement from the APC spokesman. The DSS should pick him up to explain what he means since whatever he says represents the official position of the APC. The APC and Buhari’s supporters must know that they do not have a monopoly of violence. If he is not qualified for the election, the courts should throw him out. He is not above the law. If you know that you will contest for elections in the future, you should have taken time to ensure your academic records are straight and unambiguous. The security agencies should ensure they thoroughly deal with anyone who thinks it is his birthright to unleash violence in Nigeria

    • Uzoma

      Your house girl stole your jewelry. The police should charge her for corruption, right?

      • tundemash

        And i guess the rogues behind the immigration, pension, aviation should be charged for stealing or not charged at all ! na ordinary goats dey eat yams ?

        • Uzoma

          I don’t know why you people get so tensed up when these fine distinctions are made. Just so you don’t have to worry too much, nothing says stealing is a lesser crime or evil than corrupt acts. In fact, most of these criminals would rather you describe them as being corrupt than being thieves–and that says a lot about the difference between the two.

      • Onike24

        But the house girl is not an officer of the state, in any function! When the MD of a bank steals money from his client it is stealing, but when an officer of a parastatal uses his office to receive a Pecuniary advantage of any sort; it is corruption,

        • Uzoma

          I agree with all of your submission above. The reason we need to make the distinction between stealing and corruption is a fairly simple one–provided one doesn’t shut one’s mind before one has heard you out. Stealing is very easy to prove; it is easy to find the bank MD in your example guilty of stealing customer funds and, therefore, punishing him appropriately. And more importantly, even if our bank manager was a member of APC or a member of PDP, no right thinking person, irrespective of political affiliation, would say he hasn’t stolen if the evidence is properly presented to them. With the typical corruption case, on the other hand, it is not so easy. For example, suppose politician A calls up politician B and gets him to give his or daughter a job for which s/he is eminently qualified but for which 1000 other eminently qualified Nigerians have also applied. I believe this is what they call influence peddling, which I don’t know any laws in the land has clearly defined penalties for. How is a prosecutor even going to prove that there’s been corruption? Further, why should politician A’s son or daughter be less deserving of the job (considering that he is eminently qualified for it) than the 1000 eminently qualified Nigerians?

          it takes a first class mind such as GEJ’s to be sensitive to such fine distinctions and my fervent hope is that some day soon Nigerians will finally realize in GEJ they have/had one Nigerian who is/was clearly ahead of his times.

          • Onike24

            First class mind? It is easy to investigate corruption, because there is always evidence. To use your example, is Politician A’s daughter THE most qualified? If not, then there is a, possibilty of influence peddling! quick example, the chairman of my board is a conservative member of the House of Lords, we once interviewed a prospective candidate who happened to be the nephew to the deputy prime minister, and immediately we found that out, we couldn’t continue with the interview process! He was eminently qualified, an Old Etonian, first class degree from Cambridge, speaks fluent, mandarin and Arabic. There was a Potential conflict and the head hunter was so apologetic( he has not made the connection). We had advertised the Job, given the head hunter a brief, and therefore we had opened ourselves up to scrutiny. When you live in societies when things are transparent, you begin to understand the need for scrupulous adherence to transparency . There is no difference between corruption and stealing, infact, it is a distinction without a difference. Jonathan implied that ” ordinary stealing” is somehow a lesser crime! Coming on the heels of well documented corruption scandals and the Pardoning of his ex boss you must agree, that it sends the wrong message.

  • Citizen

    Let the Silent Revolution begins with our PVC. Let us take control of our destiny and that of our generations to come. Nigeria is our birthright. 16 years is more than enough to prove competence. Let us enable a dynamic and viable opposition. We stand to benefit in the long run as Nigerians. They make most Nigerians hungry and then at election time throw some bread at them so that they will continue to milk them for another 4 years. Nigerians let the Silent Revolution begin through the ballot box. Reflect on this before you cast your vote.

      The judge only decided to use some tact in the matter in order to save Buhari the embarrassment of his life and considering also the huge amount already expended on the election processes. The criminal matter will still be heard on 22nd April. He has not been let off the hook. He is only being allowed to contest because of the short time left for the election and also to enable him meet his Waterloo. Everything being equal, he will face the worse defeat of his life on 28th March.

    • Wazobia

      Sai baba Buhari! the reasons why we should vote for Buhari are as
      follows; 1. our railways, airports, seaports and other public systems
      will work. 2. there will be employment for all unemployed graduates. 3.
      there will be nothing like corruption in Nigeria.4. there will be rule
      of law and no judge will be intimidated. 5. There will be freedom of
      religion, peace and security- meaning you can practice your religion anywhere
      in Nigeria and at anytime. People can build large churches or big
      traditional shrines in Kano or Sokoto without any fear of being killed
      for practicing their religion. Mosques or traditional shrines could be
      built anywhere in Imo or Anambra without any fear. 6. Buhari is a
      commited leader and a devout muslim. Islam is a religion of peace.
      Muslims are peaceful people. Muslims do not kill non muslims because of
      religion. Muslims are the most tolerant people in the world. In Borno,
      Adamawa and Yobe for instance, majority of the people there are muslims
      but they tolerate christianity and traditional religion and that is why
      we have peace in that region. Muslims see non muslims as there fellow
      human beings and not as infidels who do not worth staying alive. Buhari
      is the answer. After Buhari it is Abubakar Shekau as President of
      Nigeria. Because Shekau is just like Buhari- He is a devout muslim. he
      is upright and straightfoward like buhari. Very soon he will start
      pasting posters to become the President of Nigeria. Shekau for President.

    Let nobody in Nigeria call mike ozekhome a human rights lawyer and activist. He is a jeun jeun lawyer who constantly fight for jonathan and pdp causes and not the Nigerian people. I think he wants to recover all the money he paid as ransom for his release by kidnappers from jonathan before the latter leaves office May 29th. If we don’t have idiotic lawyers like mike, we wouldn’t have young unemployed graduates who have turned to kidnapping as a criminal limited liability.

    immunity (which he promised to abrogate anyway). In as much as no one is afraid of judgement being given on this case but the capacity of PDP for serious mischief is infinite. So we should still be
    prepared for more PDP mischief when the case comes up for hearing. APC jeep up your guard. Prep up your intelligence. You
    never can tell how suicidal PDP desperation can make them. As for my

For them anyone else is better than Jonathan including someone like Buhari who served under the worst military dictator Nigeria has known to date; the most virulently, corrupt individual ever to rule Nigeria – Sani Abacha. The hope of Nigerians lies in restructuring the country into regions (at least six). Anything else is chasing shadows.

    Today’s ruling was in respect of the applications for joinder filed by Ebun Adegboruwa and another meddlesome interloper…
    The ruling was by no means reserved for determining the substantive suit as to whether or not Buhari is eligible to contest in the March 28 presidential election…
    Ever since the interlocutory stages of the suit was inaugurated on Feb 9, the court has done nothing but labour to fend off the intrigues contrived by Buhari’s lawyers, all calculated to stall trail, and make way for their client, a mere pretender to the office of president, to escape justice…
    Nimble as the court has been, and with a resolve to dispose of the case timeously, the court has succeeded in shedding all the cogs thrown at the wheel of justice by Buhari’s lawyers to frustrate proceedings…
    Now that the coast is clear for Buhari’s fate to be decidedly determined, the next adjourn date of April 22 and 23 would speak on the side of justice!

    • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

      Well-crafted post, Sir. Bravo. I am of the view, too, that it is only a temporary reprieve. Lawyers to Buhari and APC have made heavy weather of service in order to stall proceedinds. But I know that the Judge will do justice to the case especially because those APC animals have been insulting him endlessly. Senile, illiterate certificate forger, perjurer, coup plotter and Islamic fundamentalist Buhari will still meet his waterloo. He will end up doing prison time. Sir, are you Barrister George Etomi?

      • Etomi

        In fact all the rulings of Justice Ademola have been in favour of the plaintiffs…
        Even today the judge found for the plaintiffs. They’d urged the court to dismiss the application for joinder filed by some interlopers like Adegboruwa…and the court was swayed by their argument..
        From start, Buhari’s lawyers began to file all sorts of frivolous applications just to see to it that they deny the suit wing to fly..
        They started by filing an application challenging the order of substituted service..
        They proceeded to challenge the entirety of the suit, arguing that it lacked merit, hence the court should strike it out in its entirety…
        That was the most dangerous application, as they sort to use it to entrap the judge and banish proceedings to the Court of Appeal…
        They had intrigued that the judge would rule against the application, which they were to quickly follow by appealing against the ruling at the Court of Appeal, while at the same time filing for stay of proceeding of the entire suit at the trial court pending the determination of their appeal…
        Smart enough, the judge did not fall into their trap but rather adjourned hearing..
        Plaintiff lawyers were also smart in urging the court to consolidate all the pending applications as well as the originating summons (ie, the substantive suit) such that they could all be taken together in one hearing…
        But Buhari’s lawyers opposed it, saying plaintiff’s counsel was in a hurry to see the case disposed of, and that the idea was to scuttle the March 28 election!
        Can you imagine?!
        But interestingly the judge ruled yet again that the all the applications and the originating summons could be taken in a single hearing…
        The very day the court gave this favorable ruling, came yet another fresh application for joinder…
        Mercifully, the judge adjourned till the next day (today) to rule on the application—he dismissed it…
        So, come April 22 and 23, hearing on all the pending applications and the originating summons will commence…

      has also stated that incumbent President Goodluck
      Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party will win the

      2015 Presidential election with a margin of 13% probability.
      That means 63% of all the votes for PDP and the remainder
      37% of the votes for the APC. In my own view, that margin

      of disgraceful defeat is enough reason for Ikuru to withdraw

      “It will be a disaster for all of Africa if Buhari is elected”

      Mr. Muhammadu Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state
      would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the
      West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.
      Western foreign policy observers, pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS
      in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria.

      Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria.
      In fact, he wants it everywhere. “I will continue to show openly and inside
      me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over
      Nigeria,” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for
      the total implementation of the Sharia in the country [Nigeria].”

      Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because
      the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an
      Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by leaders
      of the Obama administration.”

      With 72 hours to the presidential election is there anyone out there
      who can say confidently which state – just one state – in southern
      Nigeria, out of the total 17 states in the south, that General Buhari

      There is none. So, is the result of the election not obvious enough?

        “Jonathan will win 24 states including Lagos” –

        Says Brookings Institute America

        A Washington-based influential think-tank in the United States of America
        (USA), the Brookings Institute, has said the odds in Nigeria’s presidential election
        favor President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
        Though the election is expected to be very competitive, the odds still favor
        President Jonathan.

        The Brookings report gives the PDP victory in 24 states and predicts victory for
        the APC in 12. While it gave the APC victory in the North-west and the North-east,
        as well as Niger State, it gave PDP victory in all the southern states except Osun.
        It also gave the PDP victory in the North-central states except Niger as well as
        North-eastern states of Taraba and Adamawa and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

          The Opposition to Jonathan is too weak and crass

          Even Alhaji Raji Fashola cannot organise a school system, or, even organise a city bus transport system in Lagos state. School and transportation are of course the two tasks of a state. Failure to pass those two tasks is = to FAIL OVERALL. Raji Fashola is a corrupt misfit and a toxic bane on Lagos – as an example of the tenuous and incompetent opposition rallying against Jonathan.

            Why will the Muslims not declare themselves DOMINANT? Why? Tell me the reason.
            Look, let’s face the truth. Yoruba Christians are too daft and they are retarded too.
            Their Pastors don’t know better, anyway. Christianity in Lagos, for example, is now
            the religion of SLAVES.

            The Pentecostal Pastors especially receive huge bribes from their Muslim overlords
            to go and preach nonsense to their congregation that suffering is the same thing
            as Christianity. And that it is from suffering under Muslim misrule comes prosperity.

            So long as such nonsense goes on in the Churches in Lagos state, the Muslims
            will remain dominant over all Christians there. It is now a matter of time before the
            Sultan of Sokoto sends someone as THE EMIR OF LAGOS. When that time comes,
            the useless Christian Pastors in Yorubaland – such as Pastor Adeboye and Pastor Kumuyi –
            will wear their best coats to go and bless the Emir of Lagos. Nonsense Christians!!
