Court fixes September 7 to hear certificate forgery suit against Tinubu

The Federal High Court in Abuja has fixed September 7, for the hearing of a legal suit seeking the disqualification of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, from contesting the 2023 elections for allegedly presenting a forged certificate.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed fixed the hearing, just as it granted an ex-parte order for substituted service on Tinubu who had invaded personal service of court processes.

The Plaintiffs, who are four chieftains of the APC are praying the court for an order disqualifying Tinubu from contesting or participating in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election as a candidate of the APC on the grounds of the information he supplied to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the presidential candidate of the party.

Counsel to the Plaintiff, Goddy Uche, told the court that substituted service has become necessary because all attempts to serve the presidential candidate have proved abortive as he cannot be reached.

In a brief ruling, the Vacation Judge, Justice Mohammed ordered that the Court process be served on the National Secretariat of the APC and that such service shall be deemed as having been properly served on Bola Tinubu.

He further adjourned the case to September 7, for a hearing.
