2023: Prominent APC Chieftain Reveals Why Jonathan Wants To Dump PDP

Jonathan

Salihu Moh Lukman, a top chieftain of the ruling of All Progressives Congress (APC), has revealed why speculation about former President Goodluck Jonathan dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has heightened in recent times.

According to Lukman, the reason is because of PDP’s failure to recognise and appreciate Jonathan.

Lukman, who is the Director-General, APC Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), however, warned that Jonathan should not be tied to only contesting the 2023 presidential election.

He described Jonathan’s possible defection to the APC as a big gamble, adding that the ex-president can serve well in the capacity of a member of yet to be constituted APC Board of Trustees (BoT).

Lukman said: “Part of the reason high-profile membership recruitments by political parties in Nigeria attract a lot of debate, attention, and controversy, is that it hardly come without any ambition to contest election by those joining the party.

“Although in the case of Fani-Kayode, no one can associate it with the ambition to contest election, which is why many questioned his electoral value, with 2023 elections less than two years away, and with the APC leadership efficiently succeeding to win so many high-profile leaders joining the party, there has been lots of speculation in terms of what all the high-profile membership recruitment into APC represent.

“Partly because President Buhari will be completing his second term and therefore ineligible to contest, the question of who will emerge as the presidential candidate of the APC for 2023 is quite open.”
