2023: Jonathan Will Enter Guinness Book Of Record If He Joins APC – Umahi

Published

on

Presidential aspirant and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, on Tuesday said it might be difficult for the All Progressives Congress to campaign with former president Goodluck Jonathan in 2023.

He stated that the people behind the presidential form purchased for Jonathan might be all out to embarrass him.

According to Umahi, he couldn’t have emerged as the Governor of Ebonyi state in 2015 without support from Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience Jonathan.

Umahi, who met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa to present him a “Thank you” letter from Southeast leaders after his recent visit to Ebonyi, told State House correspondents that it would be another wonder of the world to see Jonathan contest for the ticket of the APC.

He said if Jonathan eventually joins APC as widely reported in some quarters, it would be a material for Guiness Book of Records.

Umahi, when asked about the presidential ambition of the former president, said, “Jonathan is my father and God used him and the wife to make me a governor of the state and so, anybody who has done anything for me, I’ve always remained very grateful to such person and I will continue to be very grateful to him, the wife for being available and my destiny helper, to achieve that feat.

“Probably if that miracle did not take place, then the miracles that happened in Ebonyi State, in terms of total evolution and transformation wouldn’t have taken place.

“So, he’s a man we can’t forget, just like Sani Abacha, who created the state and Mr. President. Of course, we’ve named the airport after him, we’ve named the light tunnel after him, we’ve named the Presidential Lodge after him.

“Good intention that we don’t forget people who have helped us, but on the question of joining, I may not say much about that because I’ve seen a lot of write ups, denials, but if he decides to join and to run, it will, for me, become one of the wonders in this century.

“The reason is that if you go and see the campaign programs of APC and you now ask President Jonathan to come and run, I don’t know what will be our campaign promises and what will be the stories we’ll be telling Nigerians.

“I believe strongly that he was not aware of the forms and I want to believe that people that are mischievous would have bought the forms to embarrass him.

“But from what I read, he has quickly distanced himself from that. But like I said, if that is not the case, then the Guinness Book of Records is not totally filled up.”
