A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday struck out a suit by a former presidential candidate of Hope Democratic Party, HDP, Chief Ambrose Albert Owuru, seeking the sack of President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The suit seeking the outright sack of the President was thrown out by Justice Inyang Edem Ekwo on three major grounds.
Parts of the grounds are that the suit constituted a gross abuse of court process, statute barred and was an affront to the supremacy of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
Ekwo in the ruling held that the suit was baseless, frivolous, irritating and vexatious in all it’s forms.
Owuru had, in the suit, applied for an order that he be declared winner and to declare the presidential seat vacant. He claimed he was the real winner of the 2019 election which Buhari won.
