Buhari according to News 24 had enlisted the services of 13 Senior Advocates of Nigeria as well as 10 other legal counsels to appeal the ruling of the court.
Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe had in his suit argued that President Buhari was not qualified to run for President because he did not possess the minimum qualification to run for the office.
He is alleging that Buhari did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961.
Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe has also requested the court to order the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return awarded to Buhari and instead award it to Goodluck Jonathan who finished second in the elections.
