‘Jonathan dumps PDP, joins APC’

Bashir Ahmad, the Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media has disclosed that former president, Goodluck Jonathan has dumped the leading opposition party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He revealed this in a tweet on Monday after reports that a Fulani group purchased APC Presidential forms for Jonathan.

In his tweet, Bashir Ahmad said “so Goodluck Jonathan has dumped the opposition PDP and now member of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC)”.

Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, in Abuja, the House of Reps aspirants explained that all circumstances point to the fact that the former President would be seeking to return to office on the platform of the party that removed him from office more than seven years ago.

According to Ahmad, a political party will sell nomination and expression of interest forms to only its registered member, adding that nobody will pay so much as N100 million for a cause he is not willing to pursue.

“No one will give out N100 million to buy Presidential forms from a party he’s not a member of. The primary criterium for parties to sell their forms to you is that you must first be a registered member”, Ahmad said.
