In the suit filed by his counsel, Mike Enahoro Ebah, the plaintiff is contending that by virtue of Section 31(5) & (6) of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended), he reasonably believes that the information supplied by Wada in both his Form CF001 and the attached First School Leaving Certificate as to his primary school education were false.

He prayed the Court to determine that the information submitted by the PDP flagbearer was indeed false and, on that basis, disqualify him from contesting in the gubernatorial elections.
