Breaking : Buhari is Eminently Qualified to Contest

The tribunal led by five panel has ruled that president Muhammadu Buhari is eminently qualified to contest for the February 2019 presidential election.

In their suit, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar had contended that Buhari did not possess the minimum qualifications to contest the election.

But the Tribunal judgment said the petitioners were unable to prove their claim in court.

To contest for president, a candidate must have a minimum of a school leaving certificate.

The Tribunal reasoned that Buhari’s career in the army was only possible because he had a school leaving certificate

During his career in the army, Buhari also took additional courses in which he performed credibly.

The chairman of the tribunal said the petitioners had failed to prove that the second respondent (Buhari) had submitted an affidavit with false information to INEC as part of the qualification to participate in the election.

He added that the law stipulates that a person can contest an election if he is a citizen who has attained 40 years and educated up to at least the school certification level and is a member of a political party.

The Tribunal, therefore, concluded that it had no doubt that Buhari possessed the minimum qualifications to contest for the presidential election.
