The former Chairman of the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) Elders Committee,  Alhaji Bashir Othman Tofa has disclosed that President Goodluck Jonathan has the right to contest the  2015 if he wishes to do so.

Tofa said: “The decision to contest or not to contest the 2015 presidential election lies on President Goodluck Jonathan and no other person has the right to demand his exclusion from that race”.

Speaking in Kano on Thursday, Alhaji Tofa said “the way I see it, if the President intends to seek re-election in 2015, it is his legal right, if he also decides not to contest again it is his right”.

He also condemned those calling on the President to resign his office on account of the state of insecurity in the county, adding that the call is not only baseless but reckless”.
