A constitutional lawyer, Mr. Johnmary Jideobi, on Tuesday approached the Federal High Court in Abuja to challenge the eligibility of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The plaintiff, in the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/751/2022, maintained that Atiku, the flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is not constitutionally qualified to participate in the presidential contest.
Consequently, he posed two legal questions for the court to determine, afterwhich he sought for seven principal reliefs against Atiku, PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, were cited as 1st, 2nd and 3rd defendants respectively in the matter.
The Attorney-General of the Federation was also joined as the 4th defendant.
