The Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa has ruled that former President Goodluck Jonathan is eligible to contest the 2023 presidential election.

The presiding judge, Justice Isa Hamma Dashen gave the judgement on Friday.

The judgment comes hours after the All Progressives Congress (APC) reportedly granted the former president a waiver to participate in its presidential primary scheduled to hold on Sunday.
