2023 Presidency: Court Dismisses Suit Challenging Atiku’s Eligibility To Contest

by Kunle Awosiyan

A Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, dismissed the suit seeking to challenge former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s eligibility to vie for the office of the president.

Delivering judgment, Justice Inyang Ekwo, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the plaintiff, The , Incorporated Trustees of Egalitarian Mission for Africa that instituted the case lacked the legal right to do so.
Justice Ekwo described the plaintiff as a “busy body and meddlesome interloper.”

The EMA challenged Atiku’s eligibility to contest for the presidency on the grounds that he was not a Nigerian citizen by birth.
