Reports from the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, say Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaiwe, an Abuja-based lawyer, has withdrawn a suit seeking the disqualification of President Muhammadu Buhari from the 2015 Presidential Poll for allegedly not possessing requisite education qualification.

Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe had alleged that President Buhari was not qualified to contest the 2015 presidential election as he did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate WASC, in 1961 as he claimed.

Buhari was represented in the case by over a dozen Senior Advocates of Nigeria, led by Wole Olanipekun and included, Femi Falana, Lateef Fagbemi, Akin Olujinmi, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Kola Awodein, Taiwo Osipitan, Charles Edosomwan, Emeka Ngige, Femi Atoyebi, Funke Aboyade, H.O. Afolabi, and Muiz Banire as well as many other junior lawyers.
