A former Presidential aspirant under the All Nigeria Peoples Party in 2007 elections, Alhaji Bashir Othman Tofa has said that only Nigerian laws can settle the debacle over the suitability of President Jonathan’s ambition to contest election in 2015.

“What we need to know is what the law says about President Jonathan’s situation, not what someone else says he heard or saw him sign. Our constitutional experts should be brave enough to speak on relevant sections of the appropriate law”.

The former Presidential candidate told THISDAY in Kano on Wednesday that “If the law allows him to contest the election, then it is up to him and the PDP to decide whether he should or not”.
