2023: PDP Puts Jonathan’s Picture In Programme Booklet

The picture of former President Goodluck Jonathan was on Saturday found in the convention programme booklet of the Peoples Democratic Party amid rumours of his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Recall that a group purchased the presidential nomination and expression of interest forms of the APC for the former president.

There had been calls for Jonathan to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023.

Though the former president has not confirmed his alleged defection to the APC, his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze in a statement released in January stated that Jonathan’s planned defection to the APC is a mere rumour.

Eze said, “Defection issue and presidential ambition are all rumours. It has no foundation. We do not want to be reacting to such (things) again. We have issued statements on this before.”

The picture of Jonathan emerged in the booklet of the PDP at the time the former President met with the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, and President Buhari’s influential nephew, Mamman Daura.

PDP which has commenced its presidential primary would hope to elect a presidential candidate that would help bring the party back to power in 2023.
