Buhari Certificate: Presidency Threatens Legal Suit Against Lawyer For Declaring Buhari Guilty Publicly

The Presidency is considering a legal action against a private lawyer, Mr. Nnamdi Nwokocha who publicly alleged lack of certificate by President Mohammadu Buhari and declared him guilty on the newspaper pages.

A Presidential Media Aide, Malam Garba Shehu, while reacting to Nwokocha’s press interviews, in a statement explained that “it is unfair for a lawyer who is a litigant to a case in court to go out of his way to hijack the power of a Judge by declaring the President guilty of what he is accused of.”

According to Malam Shehu, “newspaper pages are not alternative courts where a lawyer can declare anybody guilty of anything when the court has not formally given a definitive judgment on an issue before it.”

Malam Garba Shehu said “if Nwokocha has not stopped his unfair and professionally inappropriate abuse of free speech, the President’s competent team of lawyers will seek the instrumentality of the law in dealing with his unethical actions.
