Headed by Justice Odili, the five-member panel of judges said President Buhari ought to have hired a private lawyer to handle his personal matter.

During the hearing on Monday, September 3, 2019, Justice Odili had asked Abubakar if he was representing Buhari as a private or public citizen.

“Mr Buhari was sued as a private citizen,”

Abubakar said according to TheCable.

Odili replied:

“It is inappropriate, the representation of Mr Buhari by the senior state counsel of the ministry of justice in his personal capacity and not as Nigerian president.

“As a former president, Bill Clinton sponsored his own litigation personally, without involving the ministry of justice,”

She announced.

The Apex court alleged that Buhari’s action could also mean the use of taxpayers money to work on his private litigation.
