Court strikes out suit challenging originality of Buhari’s WASC certificate

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday struck 
out a suit challenging the veracity of President 
Muhammadu Buhari’s academic credentials.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola in his ruling said based 

on “Section 50(2) of the Federal High Court civil procedure rules,

 the matter is hereby struck out.”

The ruling followed an earlier motion filed by the 

originator of the suit, Nnamdi Nwokocha- Ahaaiwe, 

asking the court to discountenance the motion.

Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe who is an Abuja based lawyer

 had on June 16, 2016 filed the suit before the Justice 

Adeniyi Ademola-led court saying Buhari was not 

qualified to run for President because he lacked the 

minimum qualification to run for the office.

He alleged that the President didn’t sit for the Cambridge WASC in 1961.

Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe’s motion for withdrawal reads in part,

 “Take note that the plaintiff in this originating summons, 

Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, hereby discontinues this action.”
