Abuja-based lawyer, Chike Okafor has urged a Federal High Court to disqualify Buhari from contesting the upcoming Presidential elections.
The controversy surrounding the academic credentials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari seems to be never-ending as a lawyer has taken him to court over the issue.
Abuja-based lawyer, Chike Okafor has urged a Federal High Court to disqualify Buhari from contesting the upcoming Presidential elections due to false information given by the candidate in the affidavit he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in lieu of his certificate.
The former Head of State then issued a statement saying that he assumed his certificates were with the army and was surprised they weren’t.
He then authorized the Katsina College, his alma mater to release his West African Examination Council (WAEC) results.
Okafor is insisting that Buhari failed to prove that he has the minimum educational qualification to run for President and as such should be disqualified.
The Chairman of INEC, Attahiru Jega had earlier stated that anyone who wished Buhari to be disqualified should proceed to court for redress.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the other hand, has accused Buhari of forging the released WAEC results.
