Court To Finally Decide Buhari's Fate On Certificate Saga Today.


   President Muhammadu Buhari
 
Reports on ThisDay have it that President Muhammadu Buhari 
may know his fate on his protracted certificate saga today 
following a scheduled Federal High Court hearing in Abuja.
 
Buhari through his legal representatives had earlier sought 
to stop the law suit against his educational qualification
 for the post of president of Nigeria over concerns of the 
authenticity of his school leaving certificate.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who had earlier reserved ruling
 on the motion for this Wednesday, had to adjourned to 
Thursday to enable service to be delivered to parties in the case.

When the matter was called up, parties in the suit were not 
present in court. Justice Ademola, while suggesting that 
the absence of the parties in the suit may be due to the 
possibility that they were not served on the new adjourned 
date, announced an adjournment to enable parties 
to be served on the new adjourned date.

An Abuja based legal practitioner, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaiwe, 
had filed an application asking the Federal High Court to 
nullify the election of Buhari as President of Nigeria on the 
grounds that he did not possess the minimum academic 
requirement for the position.

The plaintiff in the suit also alleged that Buhari did not sit for 
the Cambridge West African School Certificate 
(WASC) in 1961 as he had earlier claimed.

But Buhari raised a preliminary objection to the suit on the 
grounds that he was not properly served.
