Can Ex Convicts Contest Or Hold Public Office In Nigeria? by softguy1: 9:00am On Oct 09, 2021
I have been hearing this topic on how ex convict can contest or not contest election

Can someone who has been found guilty and prisoned before contest or hold public office?
Let say if huspupi and others serving there jail terms comes out from prison can they contest for or hold public office....
