BREAKING: Appeal Court dismisses suit challenging Buhari’s educational qualification for 2019 elections

The court in a judgement on Friday said the application was brought outside the specified time for pre-election matters.

The applicants, Kalu Kalu, Labaran Ismail and Hassy Kyari el-Kuris, had approached the appellate court after a Federal High Court dismissed their application on the grounds that it was brought outside the specified period of time. “We have decided to settle on the preliminary objection. To determine the issue, we have to pay serious attention to when the cause of action arose.

It then added that based on section 285 of the 1999 Constitution, the case was brought later than the stipulated period of 14 days when a pre-election matter ought to have been brought.

Appeal court that has been pocketed by the ruling junta!...

Majority are uninformed. Military is a 'Profession of Arm's', keep fooling yourselves😂😂😂😂

They say the Judiciary is the last hope for the common man but in Nigeria is the beginning of the Death of the common man how can the justice system dismiss suit challenging MBuhari NGRPresident educational qualifications? Buhari is inept myopic & an outright illiterate

There's nothing breaking here. We are 007 James Bond ahead of Buhari

We understand!

We didn't expect more or less. If I were the one controlling the judiciary, would do same

We all know MBuhari is in charge of Judiciary. Dancing to the tone of MBuhari is the only thing that guarantees that you won't be harassed by the police, DSS & EFCC

Do me i do you.🤔

Who ever that is hoping for any judgement from these courts under this administration is chasing shadow. When is obvious the judges are in the bag since time immemorial.

Omogbolahanbuck Don't think anyone was expecting different.

AbdulMahmud01 We all know...buhari got no result but he is allow to be Nigeria president

Is Appeal court indirectly authorizing oluwole certificate for some people? Chai,🇳🇬is in a mess under an oppressive tyrant

Nigerian's that aren't gullible already know Buhari doesn't have WASSC. Therefore, the court judgment is unnecessary, null and void!

When we were telling SMA GOLD generation that Buhari is a wicked and ethnocentric leader, they failed to listen with the excuse that he has changed. Can a chameleon change its spots?

Before nko! Corrupt judges and the institution called judiciary.

Their own dismisses will chock them ,and the whole Nigerians, let wait and see

Too many idiots in this country. To think a Major General with several international diplomas and certificates doesn't have O levels is silly. Jokers.

The suit was dismissed not because he is qualified but because of technicalities. The substance of the matter wasn't treated. Please, 'Buharist' take note.

AbdulMahmud01 I am definitely not surprised. MBuhari has cowed the judiciary into submission: go against me,I will put you to roast, all of them have skeletons I'm their cupboard and the dullard of Daura is surely using it against them. Nigeria don kpafuka

Those people that are still taking buhari to court are only wasting there time. Apc has pocketed judiciary and the legislative. So I don't expect any magic to happen.

The Man has colonized the judiciary arm of the government!

Were we expecting anything different?

Before nko?

AbdulMahmud01 There was a country. This right here Nigerians, is the assets Justice Onoghen failed to declare , for which he was forced into resignation.

That's how they will dismiss all of Atiku's petitions. Just watch. There is no democracy around here, neither does the Judiciary have any standing before a despot. Only Nigerians can kick Buhari out. But 'we' are still living in hope that he will work his abracadabra.

Nigeria is indeed Laughable

I signed doctored result sheet merely as a witness, not to authenticate it – Atiku’s agent Lol...

Anither name for Nigeria ia Banana republic

If he had no qualifications why did we allow him all this time to learn on the job. Do we say that the professor who doesn't understand Ruga will make sacrifices better leader. People who don't know the way, cannot show the way and lead the way. Some are learned without wisdom.

Once again my nation is a world class reality show.

The Judiciary, Legislative and Executive arms of the govt are already being controlled by the APC/Buhari Cabal. 🙅

BuhariMediaORG Then they should look for something else, or wait after 2023

We been knew, so it's safe to say you can forge certificates and run for office all you have to do is just to have the CJ in your pocket

As expected

My people. Let’s hope for the best. Let’s put our trust in God. With Buhari. There’s no hope.


That's what it will be.
