Julius Ihonvbere, a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has revealed the position of President Muhammadu Buhari to the likely candidacy of Goodluck Jonathan as the presidential candidate of the party in the 2023 election.

Ihonvbere, who represents Owan West/East federal constituency of Edo in the House of Representatives said that he does not think Buhari is considering presenting Jonathan as his successor.

He said: “If it is the same Buhari that we have seen so far, those who are reading his body language, I don’t know how they read it, I have not seen the body language saying that it is Jonathan he is going to present. But Jonathan should also remember that under his administration, there were so many contradictions that he didn’t address.”

According to Ihonvbere, President Buhari has not shown any sign indicating that he is backing the prospects of Jonathan taking another shot at the presidency.

He advised the former president not to make any hasty decision regarding the 2023 presidency so that he does not lose the respect he attained after he conceded defeat in 2015.

There have been claims that the APC is trying to convince Jonathan, an erstwhile president to run for the presidency on its platform in 2023.

The speculations were heightened after some governors on the platform of the APC visited Jonathan to felicitate with him on his 63 birthday anniversary.

However, Jonathan has not directly or indirectly insinuated any interest in contesting for the 2023 presidency.
