A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, capital of Osun State, has slated for today, Monday December 17, 2019, the hearing of the suit requesting for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over alleged constitutional breaches.

News Express understands that all the parties have been served with the necessary court papers.

The suit was filed by Barrister Kanmi Ajibola, Chairman, Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Ilesa branch; and Comrade Suleiman Adeniyi, a human rights activist, against President Buhari for allegedly breaching the provisions of the Nigeria Constitution over irregularities in his claim to possess the requisite certificate to vie for the office of the President.

The litigants had written to the National Assembly to begin impeachment process against the President since, according to them, Buhari, in addition to other impeachable offences, did not possess a certificate to be qualified as a President and should therefore be impeached.

The case came up last on November 26 before Justice Maureen Onyetenu, who adjourned till December 17 following the non-service of the notice of preliminary objection on the applicants by counsel for the President.

The plaintiff in a statement issued on Sunday indicated their readiness to pursue the issue to logical conclusion through constitutional means.
