Former President Goodluck Jonathan has reportedly joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the former President picked up the ruling party’s membership card at his ward in Otueke, Bayelsa state.
“A dependable source in Jonathan’s camp” said the former president had registered with the APC at his ward in Otuoke, Bayelsa state.”the report stated
The source also claimed that Jonathan is expected to submit the presidential nomination form purchased for him by some Almajiri’s today Thursday, May 12.
“Several bigwigs of the party have also been calling Jonathan to pledge their loyalty and support to the former president. At least three top African leaders called the former president on the matter. They all urged him to run.
One of them specifically told him that it didn’t make sense travelling all over Africa settling disputes only to shy away from leadership responsibility in his home country.
Another reminded him of the implication of failing to put the experiences he garnered as a former Nigerian president and as a continental statesman to good use.”the source was quoted as saying
The former president is, however, yet to formally announce if he has defected.
