Published

on

Former President Goodluck Jonathan met with the national chairman of the ruling APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu on Monday evening.

The meeting was held despite the former president’s denial of having any connection to the APC nomination form purchased for him.

According to Leadership Newspaper, details from the meeting has revealed that the former president met with the APC chairman to discuss his aspiration to return as president in 2023.

This is the first meeting between Jonathan and the leader of any political party since he left office in 2015.

Sources close to the meeting told the news outlet that both men, who were colleague-governors between 2003 and 2007, ‘exhaustively’ discussed the former president’s aspiration to return as president in 2023.

The source said: “You know Senator Abdullahi Adamu and former President Goodluck Jonathan were governors of Nasarawa and Bayelsa respectively between 2003 and 2007. They both were in PDP. By divine arrangement, both are now in the APC.”

The source stated further that the statement released by the president on Monday night might be in response to the barrage of questions from journalists on the matter, and the inability to reach the former president ‘who was meeting his party’s national chairman.’

She said: “Forget what the Jonathan Foundation said. If, as they would want us to believe, their principal had yet to join APC, what was he doing in the private home of the APC national chairman in the dead of the night a few hours after a group bought him the party’s presidential form. “

The source confirmed that the former president has indeed joined the APC in his ward in Otuoke, Bayelsa state, and affirmed that her boss would “win the 2023 presidential election on the APC platform.”

She continued: “N100 million isn’t N1million. It will be wicked and the height of insensitivity for President Goodluck Jonathan to reject the presidential nomination forms from the Fulani group on the flimsy excuse that he wasn’t in the know, or that he’s not a member of the APC.

“After all, why did he lose in 2015? Was it not the same people posturing as PDP who betrayed him in 2015? Political parties are not religions. Even if they were, we have seen people who have changed their faiths, and the heavens did not fall. APC national chairman and national secretary were staunch PDP members. Nobody should hold Jonathan to double standards, please!”

However, Naija News earlier reported that the APC in Bayelsa State has denied Jonathan’s membership of the party.
