The Supreme Court has said President Muhammadu Buhari did not submit fake documents as accused by opposition, Atiku Abubakar.
The Supreme Court while explaining its reasons for dismissing Atiku’s appeal on Friday said the PDP Presidential candidate was wrong to depend on results from a website named www.factsdontlieng.com”. Atiku could not establish the owner of the website.
Inyang Okoro, the justice who delivered the lead judgement, said: “I agree entirely with the court below that the appellants failed to prove that INEC has the server from which they got their figures.
“As a result, all the results, calculations and analysis based on the results claimed, are of no moment.”
The ruling held that the constitution does not require anyone to possess a secondary school certificate to be qualified to run for president.
The court said the constitution gives room for a candidate who possesses a primary school certificate and has worked in the public or private service for a period not less than 10 years. Other requirements are abilities to read, write and communicate in the English language to the satisfaction of INEC to contest the election.
