Kaduna – President Goodluck Jonathan’s eligibility to run for a second term as president will be decided by a Kaduna Federal High Court on March 17, 2014, according to ChannelsTV.
The suit which also includes a restraining order on the People’s democratic Party (PDP) from accepting Jonathan’s nomination as presidential candidate was brought before the court by two members of the PDP, Richard Mnenga and Shuaibu Lilli.
