The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a suit seeking the disqualification of President Muhammadu Buhari from the last presidential election for lying on oath.

The appellants, Kalu Kalu, Labaran Ismail and Hassy El-Kuris, had approached the Supreme Court to nullify the candidacy of President Buhari in the February 23 presidential poll over allegations that he lied under oath.

They claimed that Mr Buhari lied on oath in the form CF001 he submitted to the electoral commission, INEC, for the 2019 election.

In its ruling on Monday, the Supreme Court agreed with the Court of Appeal and the federal high court which had earlier ruled that the suit was statute-barred.

The Federal High Court had on May 2 declined to grant the request of the appellants on the grounds that the suit was not filed within the time allowed by law and therefore sustained the preliminary objection raised by Mr Buhari at the hearing.

The Supreme Court ruling by a five-member panel was read by Mary Odili.
