2023: APC considering Goodluck Jonathan as presidential candidate – Deji Adeyanju hints
Deji Adeyanju, popular human rights activist, has hinted that some members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are considering fielding former President Goodluck Jonathan as their 2023 presidential candidate.
Adeyanju, convener of Concerned Nigerians, made the claim in a tweet, while stressing that PDP currently has no leader.
Adeyanju said that former PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar who resides mostly in Dubai, has abandoned the party.
He wrote: “If APC decides to give Jonathan their ticket as proposed by some, the PDP will become empty before 2023. But nothing is certain in politics.
“PDP currently does not have a leader. Only Wike is even trying to provide some form of leadership and funding for them. The Dubai guy is a clown.”
But, Jonathan who was the president of Nigeria under the platform of the PDP has not announced any plans to defect to the APC or to contest.
Recall that Adeyanju had few days ago also claimed that PDP stakeholders are considering either Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State or Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State as their 2023 presidential candidate.
