Court dismisses certificate forgery lawsuit against Kwara Governor

Jan 12, 2023

A certificate forgery lawsuit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State, has been dismissed by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

 

Justice Inyang Ekwo who delivered judgement on the case, dismissed the suit for being incompetent and an abuse of court process.

 

Ekwo pointed out that Section 29 (5) of the Electoral Act 2022 provides that only an aspirant who participated in a party’s political primary can seek to disqualify another for giving false information as in this particular case.

 

The Judge also said that PDP lacked the right to sue since it wasn’t a participant in the All Progressives Congress governorship primary that produced Abdulrazaq.

 

He concluded by saying that PDP has no right to dictate how APC conducts its affair.
