Atiku’s evidence shows Buhari academically qualified to be president – Tribunal rules

The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has dismissed the application of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mr Buhari who, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), defeated Mr Abubakar in the February 23 election is being dragged before the tribunal where it is being alleged that the president was not academically qualified to vie for the office.

Delivering judgement on the application Wednesday, the presiding judge of the tribunal, Justice Mohammed Garba, said the evidence of the opposition candidate and his party presented before the tribunal shows Mr Buhari is eminently qualified to seek election into the office of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
