Report Claims Jonathan Is Being Pressured To Contest for President On APC Ticket

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.
