Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan

ABUJA – Former President Goodluck Jonathan has described as an insult the purchase of APC presidential nomination forms on his behalf by a coalition of northern groups on Monday.
In a statement sent to Sundiata Post late on Friday night and signed by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan said he did not authorise the purchase of the nomination form.

The full statement reads:

RE: PURPORTED PURCHASE OF APC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION FORM FOR FORMER PRESIDENT  JONATHAN

It has come to the notice of His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, that a group has purportedly purchased Presidential  Nomination and Expression of Interest forms, of the All Progressives Congress (the APC), in his name.
We wish to categorically state that Dr. Jonathan was not aware of this bid and did not authorize it. 

While we appreciate the overwhelming request by a cross-section of Nigerians, for Dr. Jonathan to make himself available for the 2023 Presidential election, we wish to state that he has not in any way, committed himself to this request.

 We thank the general public for their concern, as we continue to encourage citizen participation in the affairs of the country.
