A Federal High Court in Abuja, has struck out the suit querying the educational qualification of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Justice Ademola Adeniyi dismissed the case following a ‘notice of discontinuance’ by the plaintiff. Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe.
At the resumed sitting on the matter, Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe declared his intention to withdraw the suit, though he failed to give any reason for the decision.
Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe had alleged that Buhari was not qualified to aspire for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because he did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate, WASC, in 1961 as he claimed.
The notice of discontinuance dated June 27 read: “Take note that the plaintiff in this originating summons, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, hereby discontinues this action.”
