Court clears Goodluck Jonathan to run for 2023 presidency

A Federal High Court in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, on Friday cleared former President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2023 Presidential contest.

The development is coming hours to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential primary elections scheduled for Saturday in Abuja.

Recall that the former President was recently linked with the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential race following the reported purchase of N100 million form on his behalf by a Fulani group.

However, there have been different positions on his eligibility for the 2023 presidential election.

But on Friday, the court held that Jonathan, who lost the 2015 election to President Muhammadu Buhari, could still vie for the highest political office in the country.

The presiding judge, Justice Isa Hamma Dashen, who gave the judgement on Friday, also held that Jonathan’s right to contest for the office of president in 2023 cannot be stopped by any retroactive law.
