Eligibility For 2015: S-court Dismisses Suit Against Jonathan

posted in: News | 0

ABUJA-The Supreme Court, Tuesday,
dismissed the suit seeking to stop
President Goodluck Jonathan from
vying for a re-election next year.
A five-man panel of Justices of the
apex court presided over by the Chief
Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice
Mahmud Mohammed, struck out the
appeal which was filed before it by a
Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, from Adamawa State, Dr.
Umar Ardo.
Delivering the ruling, the CJN,
accused Ardo of inviting the Supreme
Court to arrest a proceeding pending
before the Abuja Division of the Court
of Appeal.
He noted that the substantive suit
challenging Jonathan’s eligibility
is currently before the appellate
court, stressing that Ardo lacked the
locus-standi to move the apex court
to either take over hearing on the
matter or compel the appeal court to
join him as an interested party in the
pending appeal.
