According to a Twitter user, @General_Oluchi,
There are laid out rules in the 1999 Amended Constitution that makes it impossible for him to escape. We knew that Olanipekun and his team would argue that Tinubu’s forfeiture case is out of jurisdiction but if you look at section 137 (1) d, it says:
“A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if he under a death sentence imposed by any competent court of law or Tribunal in Nigeria or a sentence of imprisonment or fine for any offence involving dishonesty of fraud (by whatever name called) or for any other offence imposed on him by ANY COURT OR TRIBUNAL…”
I also believe that he should be disqualified based on section 137 (1) c which reads:
“A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if he is adjudged to be a lunatic or otherwise declared to be of unsound mind.”
We all watched Tinubu bulaba his way into Aso Rock which should never have happened if someone took him to court for this.
The next time this Constitution is amended, a mandatory health check must be included and the record made public, that’s the only way section 137 (1) c can duly take effect.
