Breaking: Jonathan Breaks Silence On APC Presidential Forms, Defection

Published

on

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has debunked viral reports of joining the 2023 presidential elections under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC.

Naija News had reported earlier that a Northern group purchased the Presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest forms for the former leader under the umbrella of the ruling party.

The development has since sparked curiosity as Nigerians are left in the dark on Jonathan’s untold defection to APC.

Reacting in a statement obtained by Naija News hours later, the Media Adviser to Jonathan, Ikechukwu Eze, stated that the former was not aware of such bid.

According to him, Jonathan would make his intentions clear to the public if he wills to join the presidential race and will not enter through the back door.

The statement reads: “It has come to our notice that a group has purportedly purchased Presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest forms, of the All Progressives Congress APC, in the name of former President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

“We wish to categorically state that Dr. Jonathan was not aware of this bid and did not authorize it.

“We want to state that if the former President wanted to contest an election, he would make his intentions clear to the public and will not enter through the back door.

“While we appreciate the overwhelming request by a cross-section of Nigerians, for Dr. Jonathan to make himself available for the 2023 Presidential election, we wish to state, that he has not in anyway, committed himself to this request. Buying a presidential aspiration form in the name Dr. Jonathan without his consent, knowing the position he had held in this country, is considered an insult to his person. The general public is therefore advised to disregard it.
