Court Adjourned Case To Swear In Atiku As President

The appeal seeking to nullify President Muhammadu Buhari’s election in 2019 and swear in Abubakar Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Nigeria’s leader was adjourned by the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Wednesday until May 18.

According to BEST NEWS NETWORK, the appeal was adjourned by a three-member panel led by Justice Haruna Tsamani to allow the ruling administration to resolve a representation issue.

It will be recalled that the Incorporated Trustees of the Civil Society Observatory for Constitutional and Legal Compliance (CSOCLC), through its counsel, Nnamdi Ahaiwe, filed an appeal in 2019 to remove President Muhammadu Buhari from office, based on their claim that President Buhari’s affidavit in the 2019 general elections was false.

Two lawyers — Oluwole Afolabi and F. O. Amedu — appeared for both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Buhari at the resumed hearing on Wednesday. Each claimed to be the legitimate representative of the ruling government, prompting the judge to adjourn the case.

Buhari, whose two-term presidency ends in 2023, is requesting that the Court of Appeal dismiss the challenge to his election.
