Jonathan Will Be Disqualified If He Contests For Presidency Again – Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer

Aloy Ejimakor, special representative of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has stated obvious reasons ex-president Goodluck Jonathan would be disqualified if he decides to run for presidency again.

Some supporters of the former President had called for him to run for president in 2023. Jonathan’s posters last week filled the APC national secretariat.

Other youth groups also stormed his office in the Maitama area of ​​Abuja last week, asking him to run for president.

Protesters have been crying foul since he left office, poverty, insecurity and unemployment, among other things.

The supporters said men and women had become beggars because of the negative policies of the current administration.

In his response, the former president said he would not say whether he would announce or not but advised his supporters to “be careful”.

But on Twitter on Friday he said the Nigerian Constitution of 1999 had already barred Jonathan from running in the election if INEC failed to do so.

The lawyer quoted Section 137 (3) of the Constitution as saying that “A person who was sworn-in to complete the term for which another person was elected as President, shall not be elected to such office for more than a single term”.
