2023 Presidency Rumour Trails Goodluck Jonathan

There are speculations linking former President Goodluck Jonathan to a 2023 presidency.

According  to the speculation, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is seeking to convince Jonathan contest for president on its platform in 2023.

Leaders of the party are reported to have been pressuring the former president to consider the offer.

An anonymous source revealed that 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.”

In the past, Jonathan has denied any interest in contesting for the presidency. The former president made it clear that he was focused on his foundation.
