2023: APC reportedly moves to adopt Goodluck Jonathan as presidential candidate
An emerging report has claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is trying to convince a former president, Goodluck Jonathan, to run for president on its platform in 2023.
The report which was carried by This Day claimed that some leaders of the party have been pressuring the former president to consider the offer.
The newspaper stated that a source who spoke anonymously said governors on the platform of the APC who visited Jonathan to felicitate with him on his 63 birthday anniversary, used the occasion to subtly represent their presidential proposal to him.
The report further claimed that the move to have a Jonathan presidency in 2023 is backed by Buhari’s close loyalists.
According to the claims, Buhari’s allies believe that Jonathan would be harmless to their group interest and as such the right person to take over if power were to shift to the South.
A source in Buhari’s camp who didn’t want to be identified was quoted to have said:
“He handed over power peacefully and nursed no bitterness against anyone and therefore will not be a threat to the interest of the north.
However, Jonathan has in the past denied any interest in contesting for the presidency. The former president made it clear that he was focused on his foundation.
Meanwhile, following the agitations by some geo-political zones to produce the next president of Nigeria, the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has revealed the qualities of who would become President Buhari’s successor.
The Cable reported that the governor said the APC would produce a president in 2023 that would unify the country.
Bello when speaking Channels TV on Thursday, November 20, said the PDP’s ambition to take back power is a “lofty dream” and ”castles in the air.”
I have said it before Jonathan is one of the historical president in Nigeria in Africa at large
The same man we rejected in the year 2015 is now a Messiah in 2023, Goodluck Jonathan I beg you please run for your life ooh, you better contest for papa of Africa in 2023, since 2015 respect has been there for you
Oga Jonah!!!… U better be wise with this bunch of foolish yeye people. They are just pulling your legs and transfer all the atrocities they’ve commit into your head. Shine your eyes.
If Goodluck Jonathan is adopted, what happens after he had spent his last one term in office? Will power shift to the North or what? Hmmm political calculation.
Apc have already know that, they have failed Nigerians and they want to use Jonathan that people love to shine again,God punish una, Even if Jonathan is contesting as president in apc,I will never vote all this old cargos, Because they are birds of Thesame feather,they have nothing good to offer Nigerians, we need vibrant youth as president come 2023.
