He wants the court to make an order declaring that Buhari is not constitutionally qualified for the office of the president and therefore should be disqualified.
Parts of the relief he sought is for him to serve Buhari and INEC on the pages of newspapers which has been published in the Vanguard and the Sun Newspapers on Sunday.
