When would the court also nullify Buhari's participation at the presidential election?

In a bid to achieve their desperate motives in Osun State, the APC true fraudulent means decided to set a template that will consume their biggest political asset, Buhari. I'm pleased that issues of Buhari's oluwole WAEC result is included in the petition by Atiku. #AtikuIsComing— 🥊Alhaji Table Breaker🔴 (@yemi_adebowale) April 2, 2019

Buhari has no Waec, he is the president while court nullified Adeleke mandate, claiming he has no Waec.— Nwanne Ka Enyi (@Nwanne_KaEnyi) April 2, 2019
