The Supreme Court has just dismissed the suit seeking the disqualification of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election over an alleged act of perjury.

The appellants, Kalu Kalu, Labaran Ismail and Hassy El-Kuris had approached the Apex Court to nullify the candidacy of President Buhari in the just concluded presidential poll over allegations of perjury.

The appeal followed the dismissal of their suit at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, on grounds that it was statute-barred and as such cannot be heard.

The appellants specifically want Buhari’s nomination and subsequent victory at the February 23 presidential election nullified on the grounds that President Buhari lied on oath in his form CF 001 he submitted to INEC for the purpose of clearance for the presidential election. (Nigerian Tribune)
