The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has said that President Muhammadu Buhari was “eminently” qualified for the 2019 election, which he contested.
The tribunal stated this on Wednesday, while delivering judgment in the petition filed by Atiku Abubakar, and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the victory of President Buhari at the polls.
The chairman of the five-man panel of the tribunal, Justice Mohammed Garba said at the ongoing ruling on Atiku and PDP petition, that Buhari’s witnesses confirmed that he had a secondary school education.
He held that Buhari would have been qualified by mere showing that he had a primary school education, adding that the army courses Buhari attended, were higher than secondary school education.
According to him, the petitioners failed to prove the allegation of non-qualification or submission of false information which is fundamental in the aid of the 2nd respondent’s qualification.
