SAHARANEWS – Looking at the five count petitions from Atiku’s camp against Buhari’s camp it must be clearly stated that they are weighty especially when proven with evidences. I don’t see how Buhari will survive this.
The five grounds of the petition read,
“The 2nd respondent (Buhari) was not duly elected by the majority of lawful votes cast at the election.
“The election of the 2nd respondent is invalid by reason of corrupt practices.
“The election of the 2nd Respondent is invalid by reason of non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended).
4.“The 2nd respondent was at the time of the election not qualified to contest the said election.
“The 2nd respondent submitted to the 1st Respondent an affidavit containing false information of a fundamental nature in aid of his qualification for the said election.”
Arguing that Mr Buhari was not qualified to run for the office of the president, the petitioners argued in part,
“The petitioners state that the 2nd respondent (Buhari) does not possess the educational qualification to contest the election to the office of the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
