ABUJA – Justice Ademola Adeniyi of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, yesterday, adjourned 10 separate suits that are seeking to disqualify the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Major-General Mohammadu Buhari, rtd, from participating in the March 28 presidential election, for hearing today.

In a ruling yesterday, Justice Adeniyi said he would hear the substantive suits and all the preliminary objections 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.

Justice Adeniyi stressed that whatever judgment that is entered on the very first suit which was lodged before the court by Mr. Chukwunweike Okafor, would impact on all the other cases pending against the APC presidential candidate.

Specifically, ‎the plaintiffs are among other things, praying the court ‎for a declaration that the 1st defendant, Buhari, is not eligible to participate in the 2015 presidential election for failure to comply with the terms for submission of list of candidate and affidavit of personal particulars of persons seeking election to the office of President.
