Top 2023 Presidential Candidate Set To Surrender To Buhari’s APC

LAGOS – Former President Goodluck Jonathan is currently weighing his options between remaining in his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), or decamping to the ruling All Progressives Con­gress (APC) ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Daily Independent has gathered.

A very close associate of the former president who disclosed this to Daily Inde­pendent on Wednesday said he (Jonathan) is widely con­sulting and will “make a bold decision very soon on wheth­er or not he will listen to the agitations of Nigerians who are yearning for his return”.

He, however, said it won’t be a surprise to him if Jona­than defects to the APC given the political ostracisation he has suffered in the hands of his party and the respect be­ing accorded him in APC.

While recalling what hap­pened during the November 2019 governorship election in Bayelsa State, he said many of the president’s kinsmen are already in APC, adding that the PDP government in the state led by Governor Duoye Diri is not making any efforts to bring them back to the PDP.

“I don’t know if he will join the APC. The ultimate decision is his. But as one of his close political associate, I won’t be surprised if he joins. There are two major political parties in Nigeria presently, APC and PDP, and if your in­terest is not met in one, you have constitutional right to move to another.
