The case was dismissed by an apex court panel chaired by Musa Dattijo-Muhammad, who ruled that it was an abuse of the legal process.

Electoral Act 2022’s Section 84 (12) cannot be struck down by the court because Buhari had previously agreed to it, Justice Aokmaye Agim, who delivered the lead judgment, ruled.

“The president has no power to request or compel the national assembly to amend any part of the Act of the National Assembly in which he has participated in its making,“ he added.
