I’m very sure if this man was tried in Nigeria he would have been a free man long time ago, probably jostling for one political post or the other, this showed the level our evolution as a nation state, still so backward

With the way Nigerian Constitution is, it is only the Federal government that can run rail business, or construct railway.

Hmmm.............A bloody Good Question Oga Salida jare

I would say Tribal sentiment, and our Political divide would stop this happening....I do remember some many moons ago when this was discussed here on SMN there were members who supported MEND cause even though they all knew they have killed innocents.....

MEND Cause was worthy, but the killing of innocent Nigerians is not

By law, Jonathan is serving his final term as president - Daily Trust Online

Since i am not a laywer, I have never looked at this way. But this makes some sense. Legally speaking, GEJ cannot contest the 2015 election because to allow him stay in office till 2019 means he would have spent 9 years in office which is exactly what the consitution seeks to limit to 8 years. The Law is really an Ass.

It will be interested to see how this is resolved. The earlier the better.

There's nothing in the constitution that stops private companies from running railway companies, the only snag is that because nobody owns any land you'll have to forfeit your lines when the lease expires, but this is so impractical that its unenforceable.
