Buhari’s certificate: Lawyer withdraws suit, alleges threat to life

A lawyer, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, has filed a notice at the Federal High Court in Abuja to discontinue the suit he instituted seeking the disqualification of President Muhammadu Buhari for lack of requisite certificate for the office of President.
Ahaaiwe sought the disqualification of Buhari saying the President he did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 as he claimed.
However, he filed the notice of discontinuance, dated June 27, and did not give any reason for withdrawing the case from court.

There are speculations that the recent action may have been prompted by the subtle threats on him to withdraw the case from court.
He had alleged that his family and friends were being threatened over the case and was concerned for his safety.
It is almost certain that the case, which would be heard today (Thursday) before the trial judge, Justice Ademola Adeniyi, will be dismissed.
