Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has withdrawn a suit that sought to restrain the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Attorney General of the Federation from preventing him from his presidential ambition.
On Monday, his lawyer prayed the court to make an order striking out the suit and that all the parties in the suit have been served the motion for withdrawal.
“We have the plaintiff’s instruction to withdraw this suit. We shall be praying your Lordship to respectfully discontinue the suit and make an order striking out the suit,” the lawyer said.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja division, granted the request and struck out the suit.
