In its judgement, the tribunal said the evidence tendered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) shows that Buhari was qualified to run for president.

The ruling was read out by Muhammed Garba, the head of the appeal court panel.

“The CV contains impressive credentials that enable the second respondent (Buhari) to contest for the presidential election,” Garba held.

“The second respondent has more than secondary school certificate. There is no doubt he is not only qualified but also eminently qualified to contest the election as shown by the evidence presented by the petitioners themselves.”

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had filed a petition at the tribunal challenging the victory of Buhari who contested under the All Progressives Congress (APC)
