A Nigerian man, Itsede Kingsley Okai has filed a law suit against President  Buhari as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at Lagos High Court


Following the declaration of the INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu which stated that there is room for legal action if anyone is in doubt of claims by candidates in the 2019 elections, Okai filed the suit before the Federal High Court, Lagos to challenge Buhari’s qualification to stand for the upcoming elections .

Prior to this time, President Muhammadu Buhari had told the commission as well as critics of the government, that his academic records are still with the military .

Addressing a press conference at the commission headquarters on Friday, Yakubu said any doubt on the forms submitted by the candidates regarding their personal particulars can be challenged in court.

Below is what Itsede Kingsley Okai shared on his Facebook page;

“Like I promised on Friday, I have filed a suit against Buhari and INEC before the Federal High Court, Lagos to challenge his qualification to stand for the 2019 Presidential Election. For this reason, I shall speak less of this matter since it’s already before the Court. I believe in the Nigerian judiciary and hopeful the court will end this debate once and for all”.
