Following speculation that former President Goodluck Jonathan made decamp to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the 2023 presidential election, the South-East APC Presidency Project 2023 has given reasons why he must resist the temptation to contest in the forthcoming general elections.
While welcoming Dr. Jonathan to the APC if he desires to join the party, the APC group in a statement insisted that people who love the former President “must advise him not to entertain any divisive and dangerous thought of contesting for president of Nigeria in 2023.”
The full statement signed by the National Coordinator of the South-East APC Presidency Project 2023, Dr Chinedu Jideofo-Ogbuagu, reads:
“That APC governors just visited Dr Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan on his 63rd birthday has fuelled speculations of his imminent defection to our party, All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Of course, Dr Jonathan is most welcome to jump the sinking PDP ship and join the roaring APC train. But not to contest for 2023 Presidency.
“People who love him must advise him not to entertain any divisive and dangerous thought of contesting for president of Nigeria in 2023.
“2023 is for South-East and no selfish or greedy person from anywhere should play the spoiler on the basis of any self-serving permutations.
“Dr. Jonathan should join APC to support emergence of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction on APC platform in 2023 – as South-Easterners heavily supported him in 2007-2015.
“It is payback time, and he must not exhibit any treacherous trait against the South-East – no matter the temptation”, the statement concluded.
