On eligibility suits against the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, the group maintained that the suits were unnecessary saying, “it depicts the uncivilized nature of our politics. Perhaps, it is another plot to scuttle the ongoing democratic process since this same Buhari was not disqualified in 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections by either the electoral body or competent court of law.”
