Electoral Commission-EC has declined to nominate Sulaiman Jakana Nadduli as a candidate for the Nakaseke Central Parliamentary Seat citing a mismatch in the names on his academic documents and National Identity card.  

Jakana turned up at the Nakaseke district Electoral Commission offices around 11 am on Thursday for nomination in the company of among others his father, Al-Haji Abdul Nadduli, the former Minister without Portfolio.  

Shortly after his arrival, he was summoned by Nakaseke Electoral Commission Registrar, Mike Jjuuko to present his nomination requirements.  

However, after keen scrutiny of the document, which lasted for about 10 minutes, the officials informed Jakana that he was unfit for nomination because of inconsistence of the name on his documents.  

Jjuuko later explained that Jakana presented academic papers showing a different set of names from those in his National identity card.

Jakana told URN shortly after he was turned away that he is optimistic of working on the problem by close of the nomination exercise.
