The Nigeria info Radio Station on Monday 8th August, 2022, has said that The Abuja Federal High Court has now picked September 7 to hear a case seeking to disqualify Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) from contesting the 2023 presidential election.
Four APC chieftains had petitioned the court for Tinubu’s disqualification claiming he allegedly provided misleading information to INEC.
A 33-paragraph affidavit in support of the suit made available by one Ibiang Miko Ibiang in which the plaintiffs said that Tinubu lied in an affidavit presented to INEC in 1999, claiming to have attended St Paul Aroloya Children Home School, Ibadan -1958-64, and Government College, Ibadan -1965-68.
Ruling on an ex-parte application, the judge, Ahmed Mohammed, granted an order for substituted service on Tinubu.
The plaintiffs’ counsel, Goddy Uche informed the court that substituted service has become necessary because all attempts to serve the presidential candidate proved abortive.
The court ordered that court processes should be served on the national secretariat of the APC and that such service shall be deemed as having been properly served on Tinubu. He then adjourned the case to September 7th for a hearing.
At least one person should have stood up and said he was his or her classmate or even school mate, is he the only person in his class or the school he claimed he attended?
However, does this give Amaechi, the runner-up in the APC primaries, the chance of becoming the presidential candidate of the party, if maybe the court finally disqualifies Tinubu?
