They said he failed to include his primary and secondary education in his form CF001 of 1999, submitted ahead of the gubernatorial election.

The APP cited section 29 of the Electoral Act 2022 and 131 of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution.

APC counsel, Babatunde Ogala filed a notice of preliminary objection, insisting the suit was statute barred and that the APP had no locus standi.

APC campaign spokesperson, Bayo Onanuga said the plaintiff was not in court when the matter came up before Justice Emeka Nwite.

“Justice Nwite subsequently struck out the case for lack of diligent prosecution”, Onanuga added.
