Jonathan’s posters adorn APC secretariat in Abuja, pressure intensify

The posters of former President Goodluck Jonathan have adorned the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.

The posters, with a big picture of the ex- President in his Southsouth attire and a bowler hat with the inscription: “Goodluck Jonathan You Must Run”, are occupying a conspicuous position on the wall of the party secretariat.

At the Wuse 2 area in Abuja, posters on the fence of many buildings, especially the uncompleted ones at Blantyre Street where the APC secretariat is located.

It will be recalled that the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), along with some APC governors, paid a courtesy visit to the former president, fuelling suspicion of moves to woo Jonathan to the party.

The committee was alleged to have muted the idea of dragging the ex-President to come and contest the 2023 presidential election on the platform of the APC.

Early Friday, a spokesman for the group urging the ex-President to contest, stormed his residence, Mayor Samuel, who is also the convener of the Youth Compatriots of Nigeria said, “We were deceived and brainwashed by those who claimed they could do it in 2015.

“Now, we know better, under Jonathan the minimum wage could buy one or two bags of rice. What do we have today? We are begging President Jonathan to forgive us, we have realized our mistakes, we want him back to complete what he started.

As at the time of filling this story, the former President is still a card carrying member of the opposition Peoples democratic party PDP, it is however unclear how these events will play out but the answers should be obvious in the coming days.
