Jonathan is scheduled to submit the presidential nomination form acquired for him by some Almajiri’s today, Thursday, May 12, according to the source.

One of them specifically told him that it didn’t make sense travelling all over Africa settling disputes only to shy away from leadership responsibility in his home country.

Another reminded him of the implication of failing to put the experiences he garnered as a former Nigerian president and as a continental statesman to good use.”the source was quoted as saying
