Jonathan Not Qualified To Contest In 2015 – Kwankwaso

Kano State Governor, Dr. Musa Rabiu Kwankwaso has warned that President Goodluck Jonathan is not qualified to contest for presidency in 2015.

According to Kwankwaso, any attempt by Jonathan to run in the next poll will amount to a third term in office, which is not acceptable to most Nigerians.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, yesterday, the governor also advised President Jonathan to take urgent steps to solve the raging insecurity challenges in the North-East and stabilise the Nigerian economy before taking a bow from governance in 2015, when he would have attained the eight-year maximum limit stipulated by the Nigerian Constitution.

He argued that contrary to the President’s position that his tenure started in 2011, the true position remains that he actually started serving as Nigeria’s President in 2007 and would have completed his eight years in 2015.

Describing any third term bid as a taboo, Kwankwaso pointed out that Jonathan and those urging him to run in 2015 could never justify such a move, which runs contrary to the clear provisions of the law.

“Jonathan is not qualified to contest election again in 2015 going by the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution. Third term is not acceptable to any part of Nigeria and the time limit stipulated must be respected by all Nigerians.

“I am sure Nigerians will kick against a third term whether by Jonathan or by any other person in this country.

“Mr. President would have completed his eight years in office by 2015. He served as Vice President for two years, Acting President for two years and is doing another four years, which will terminate in 2015.

“But those advising the President are pretending that his tenure started in 2011. I saw them on television the other day trying to argue in that direction, but they can never be correct. I am not a lawyer, but I know that two plus four plus six can never be eight,” Kwankwaso said.


  1. Kwankwaso abi na kwasiorkor, don’t u knw d difference b/w vice president & president? He was vice president in 2007, so how could his presidency tenure hav started in 2007? Abi ur desperation no gree u sabi book again or wat?

  2. Kwankwaso is a peti dat u can nt knw d different btw vice president an president an u still carry urself about as a governor of a state i wonder wat will be come of u if at d end all u guy plan does nt work out GEJ will contest an ntin will happen.

  3. He who says that kwankwaso is a fool b/cos he could not differentiate b/w president & vice president may be speaking the truth, but all I know, from my elementary knowledge of Arithmetic is that, 2 + 4 + 4 can never be 8 and thrice can never be twice, south can never be north and stagnation of power for 16 yrs or even more can never be rotating of power in b/w the north & south as stipulated in the party that created president Jonathan, I think there most have been a lacuna in your calculations. The pro Jonathan candidature in 2015 are the biggest fool. Lol
