Court adjourns Buhari’s certificate suit till Nov. 26

The Federal High Court in Osogbo, Osun state will hear the suit on the certificate of President Muhammad Buhari on November 26.

The case was instituted by a lawyer, Kanmi Ajibola, who claimed that Buhari is not fit to hold the position of the President of Nigeria because he does not possess a secondary school certificate.

Ajibola also claimed that the president presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) when he contested in the 2015 presidential election.

He insisted that the president violated section 137 (1) (j) of the 1999 constitution.

When the matter came up today, counsel to President Buhari, Solomon Ogunlowo filed a notice of preliminary objections.

But the counsel to Ajibola, Samuel Echeonwu, told the court that Buhari’s lawyer did not served him the process for the preliminary objections.

Ogunlowo promised to serve Ajibola’s lawyer the notice of preliminary objections before next adjournment.

The judge, Justice Maurine Onyetenu, however fixed November 26 for the continuation of the case.
