Meeting

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC), has validated the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

PEPC thus dismissed  the argument of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that President Buhari  was not academically qualified to contest the election.

Buhari was re-elected for a second term in office in February under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), however his eligibility was questioned in court by the PDP.

In its rulling on Wednesday, the tribunal ruled that Buhari possesses the West African School Certificate Examination, (WASCE) to contest the 2019 presidential election.

It said Buhari was not only qualified but “eminently” qualified to contest the election, saying that the petitioners, PDP and its presidential candidate at the election, Atiku Abubakar, could not dispute the fact that Buhari obtained WASCE which qualified him for the election.

The court said apart from being qualified, the president also obtained other certificates to validate claims that he is eminently qualified for the presidential poll.

Chairman of the tribunal, Garba Mohammed, therefore, struck out the claims by PDP and Atiku.
