Election 2015 Buhari disqualification suits postponed to April 22

ABUJA – Justice Adeniyi Ademola Wednesday morning put paid to speculations that the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari might be disqualified from participating in Saturday’s election when he adjourned hearing in the 10 separate suits seeking to bar the APC candidate till April 22 and 23.

Justice Adeniyi however dismissed the applications filed by two human right activists, Mr. Chukwuma Ochu who is a member of the APC in Rivers State, and Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa from Lagos state seeking to be joined as defendants in the suit.

In a ruling yesterday, Justice Adeniyi said he would hear the substantive suits and all the preliminary objectons that were raised against them by both Buhari and the APC together.
All the pending applications were consolidated for hearing on a day two human right activists, Mr. Chukwuma Ochu who is a member of the APC in Rivers State, and Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa from Lagos state, applied to be joined as interested parties in the matter.

The court noted that since all the suits were basically anchored on the same subject matter, which is the eligibility or otherwise of Buhari to contest in the forthcoming presidential election having allegedly supplied false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, with regards to his educational qualifications, it would be better to slate all of the matters for hearing on the same day.
Details later.
