Sani Al’ameen Disagrees With Falana Over Jonathan’s Eligibility
A clan leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Bauchi gubernatorial competitor, Sani Al’ameen has blamed the proclamation of Senior attorney, Femi Falana, in which he said previous President Goodluck Jonathan is ineligible to challenge for the workplace of the President since he has been sworn into office two times.
Falana had put together his affirmation with respect to segment 137 (3) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as revised).
Nonetheless, in an explanation imparted to columnists on Friday, Al’ameen couldn’t help contradicting Falana, saying that the law doesn’t matter to Jonathan since it was instituted after he had been confirmed two times.
He made sense of that the principal residency of late President Umaru Yar’adua which he finished won’t be considered piece of his residency since it was initially Yar ‘adua’s order.
“It is inappropriate to say that Jonathan is excluded from challenging the 2023 official political decision only for the basic explanation that assuming he wins the political decision he will spend an extra term of four years. Allow me to take you a piece back. Previous Governor of Yobe State, Ibrahim Geidam finished the principal residency of the late Mamman Ali and he challenged the political decision two times and won without obstruction of any sort from anyone.
“Jonathan who comes from the south presented and burned through billions of naira as instruction mediation and fabricate many tsangaya Schools to help all Almajiri kids who were dismissed by the past chiefs, both military and regular citizens.
“He accomplished this work in light of a legitimate concern for one country, for that we are as yet calling him to come out and challenge for president in 2023. We believe Nigerians should uphold him to empower him to go on with the great work he began, particularly tending to the financial and security challenges tormenting the country,” he said.
