A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa has ruled that former President Goodluck Jonathan is eligible to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The presiding judge, Justice Isa Hamma Dashen gave the judgement on Friday.
He also held that Jonathan’s right to vie for the office of president again cannot be stopped by any retroactive law.
The decision of court comes a day after the former president submitted his All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.
Jonathan is believed to enjoy the support of the Aso Rock Cabal who wants him as consensus candidate.
