Atiku Wins Round Three As Court Says Buhari’s Qualification Not Pre-Election Matter

The court has struck out an application filed by the 1st Respondent, INEC, seeking the court to nullify ground 4 and 5 of PDP and Atiku’s petition.

The court held that grounds 4 and 5 of PDP and Atiku’s petition is not a pre-election matter and is hereby accepted by the court based on the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.

Ground 4 is seeking the court to disqualify President Muhammadu Buhari on grounds of non-qualification while ground 5 is that President Buhari submitted false information of a fundamental nature in aid of his qualification to INEC.
