February 4, 2015 8:24 am

Information reaching us indicates that the lawyer to , the
plaintiff in the case challenging the eligibility of the Presidential
Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, in an
Abuja court, is the personal lawyer to President Goodluck Jonathan.

He is , SAN, and is the same man who is appearing
for President Jonathan in the eligibility case pending in the Court of
Appeal against the president. The judge in this matter, Justice Adeniyi
Ademola, is a personal friend to Attorney General of the Federation,
Mohammed Adoke, and is alleged to be “soft” within the law circles. 

It is well known fact that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has never lost a case before him.

source in the presidency, who spoke to our correspondent, insisted that
they will stop at nothing to truncate the democratic process if the
signs of a possible loss at the polls continues. The chief architect of
this attempt is President Jonathan, who has embarked on a series of
legal manipulations to stop General Buhari.

Apart from the legal processes, the presidency has been sponsoring print
and electronic adverts calling for election postponement to scuttle the
planned February 14 presidential elections.

Lately, the ruling
party has been desperately shopping for lawyers of the Yoruba extraction
and favourable judges to file and sit on the cases brought up against
Gen. Buhari, all in a bid to stop the humiliating defeat they envisage
in the February 14 Presidential election. A top Abuja lawyer (name
withheld) was recently approached with millions of dollars by a
representative of the Fuel Subsidy Cartel to prosecute a case against
the General but declined the offer.

It is believed that more than the politicians in the ruling party,
cronies of the president, along with those directly benefiting from the
corruption and disorganisation in the petroleum industry and the
military, are most afraid of a Buhari Presidency. There is said to be
palpable fear amongst the president’s handlers that the game is up,
hence the last minute moves to either keep the APC candidate off the
ballot papers or postpone the elections to allow the negative publicity
against him to gain some traction.

So far, the ground swell
behind a Buhari presidency has been unprecedented, with every online
poll indicating a landslide victory for the General and his running
mate, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. Despite negative propaganda against him, the
support for the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket has suffered no loss. Meanwhile,
the President has been stoned in Katsina, Bauchi, Adamawa & Taraba
states, all under the control of his party.
