A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit by a former presidential candidate of Hope Democratic Party, HDP, Ambrose Owuru, against the election of President Muhammadu Buhari, in the 2019 presidential election.

In his ruling, the presiding Judge, Inyang Ekwo, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the suit constituted a gross abuse of court process; statute barred and was an affront to the supremacy of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

Justice Ekwo held that the suit was baseless, frivolous, irritating and vexatious in its entirety.

Owuru had, in the suit, applied for an order of court to declare the presidential seat vacant and swear him in as the authentic winner of that election.
