A Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed a suit filed by Chief Ambrose Albert Owuru, a former presidential candidate of the Hope Democratic Party, against the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, in the 2019 presidential election.

The suit seeking President Buhari’s dismissal was dismissed by Justice Inyang Edem Ekwo on three major grounds.

Part of the grounds are that the suit was a gross abuse of court process, was statute barred, and was an affront to the Supreme Court of Nigeria’s supremacy.

Furthermore, Justice Ekwo ruled that the entire suit was baseless, frivolous, irritating, and vexatious.

Owuru had, in the suit, applied for an order of court to declare the presidential seat vacant and swear him in as the authentic winner of that election.
