The PEPT has held that as against the argument by Atiku Abubakar and the PDP, President Muhammadu Buhari was eminently qualified to contest the last presidential election. Note: ‘Atiku Suffers Heart Attack’.
In its judgment, still being read, the court said evidence presented by the petitioners even showed that Buhari did not only has a West African School Certificate (WASC), he possesses more academic qualifications that make him even overqualified to contest the election.
The court also held that as against the petitioners’ claim, there is no iota of falsehood in the affidavit of personal information submitted to INEC by Buhar before the election.
On the issue of qualification, the court held that the petitioners failed to prove their claim that Buhari was not qualified to contest the election.
