BuhariA Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out two suits out of about three that sought to stop President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, to stand for the March 28, 2015 election.
The striking out of the suit followed their withdrawal by the plaintiffs on Wednesday.
TheEagle Online reports that Justice Adeniyi Ademola struck out the suits after the plaintiffs indicated their intention to withdraw them.
Counsel to one of the plaintiffs, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), said his client decided to withdraw his suit to afford the incoming government time to focus on the “enormous task” of governance.
The second case, filed by Max Ozoaka, was also struck out for similar reasons.
Ozoaka’s lawyer, Dr. Chike Amobi, told Justice Adeniyi that his client was no longer interested in pursuing the matter.
With this development, only one suit is left on the eligibility of Buhari to stand for the election.
It is the suit filed by Ayakeme Whiskey. Buhari was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the election and won the election after he defeated the closest rival, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
