The Supreme Court has dismissed the suit instituted by President Muhammadu Buhari against the National Assembly, challenging the legality of section 84 subsection 12 of the Electoral Act 2022.
The court held that President Buhari having assented to the bill on February 25, 2022 can not turn around to challenge same act.
In a unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the apex court held that allowing the President’s suit will amount to aprobating and reprobating at same time and no court of law shall allow such.
The court held that the suit is a gross abuse of the court process.
