President Buhari has been deemed eminently qualified to have contested in the 2019 Presidential election according to a ruling by the
Presidential Electoral Petition Tribunal (PEPT).
The Tribunal ruled that President Buhari possesses the West African School Certificate Examination, WASCE, to contest the 2019 presidential election.
Going further, the ruling stated Buhari was not only qualified, but eminently qualified to contest the election, saying that the petitioners (Atiku Abubakar and PDP), could not run away from the fact that Buhari obtained WASCE for qualification for the election.
The Chairman of the tribunal, Garba Mohammed, therefore struck out the claims by the PDP and Atiku that Buhari did not possess the needed qualification for the election and that he presented false information to INEC.
