Following President Jonathan ‘s picking of his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms to contest for the 2015 General election, a PDP Chieftain in Adamawa, Dr. Umar Ardo has said that he is shocked that in spite of the litany of court cases challenging the eligibility of President Jonathan to contest the 2015 election.
Ardo in a statement said; “I am shocked that in spite of the litany of court cases challenging the eligibility of President Jonathan to contest the 2015 election, the president was still lured into picking the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms.”
Speaking further Ardo said: “All I can say is that the collection of forms by the president means very little – with the courts still superintending over his eligibility or otherwise it is still not yet Uhuru for the president as far as his contesting the 2015 elections is concerned.”
“After all, didn’t Fintiri collect forms and even secured the party ticket for the Adamawa governorship election? What happened to Fintiri is likely to happen to Jonathan. I am confident of that. After that the PDP Presidential forms will be available to all interested and eligible Nigerians. I advise Nigerians to just wait for the due process of law to take its full course. We will all come out stronger,”Ardo said.
