Ex President Goodluck Johnathan Says Rumours That He Intends to Recontest As President is “A Mere Speculation”

There have been rumours that ex-Nigerian President, Goodluck Johnathan, who oversaw the nation’s affairs from 2010 to 2015, is returning to Aso Rock to complete a constitutionally permissible two terms service. However, Jonathan poured cold water on the rumour mill when he led a delegation of politicians from Bayelsa on a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State on the loss of his father at Government House, Asaba, on Friday, March 5, 2021.

He said: “On the rumour of my interest in the 2023 presidential election, it is mere speculation. I will continue to serve God, humanity, Africa and the world to the best of my ability and with all sense of commitment and sincerity,

“I believe that the president himself is not sleeping and that the governors are not sleeping as well over the insecurity challenge in the country.

“As long as the governors, the president and all the security agencies can work together, Nigeria will be able to cross over this very ugly phase of societal evolution.”

There have been reports lately that Jonathan would defect to the APC as he seeks to govern Nigeria for a second time, amid confusion on whether a recent constitutional amendment bars him from doing so.

Former Senate President Bukola Saraki recently held a meeting with Jonathan and announced Jonathan wouldn’t be leaving the PDP for the APC.
