Electoral Act: Supreme Court Strikes Out President Buhari, Malami’s Suit Challenging Section 84(12)
The Supreme Court on Friday(today) struck out President Muhammadu Buhari and the Attorney General of the Federation’s suit challenging Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act.
The case was expunged on the grounds that it lacks the jurisdiction to entertain the suit and is an abuse of court process.
In a unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim the court said allowing the suit to have it’s way will amount to approbating and reprobating at the same time and no court of law shall allow that.
The Apex Court unanimously agreed that President Buhari lacked the jurisdiction to bring the suit before it because of the nature of the reliefs sought.
