Atiku Abubakar, PDP, Federal High Court, Akwa, Anambra state, 2023 presidential election.

The court has adjourned the suit seeking to disqualify Atiku Abubakar from contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Ekejiuba sought the disqualification of Atiku in the suit which has been adjourned to February 1, 2023

However, Justice Nganjiwa chose the date after hearing the ex-parte application moved by Ekejiuba.

The application was for substituted service of the originating processes on respondents which the court granted an order to serve respondents at their respective headquarters in Abuja by substituted means.

In addition, Ekejiuba said that allowing the flag bearer of the PDP to contest for the 2023 presidential election will infringe on his right.

According to the plaintiff, for President Muhammadu Buhari, a nrotherner to handover power to another northerner in the person of Atiku in 2023 is contrary to the convention on power shift between the north and south.
