2023: Why APC Stalwarts Have Eyes On Goodluck Jonathan?
Many Nigerians will remember Jonathan being humiliated and maligned by some APC stalwarts before and after the 2015 general election simply because they wanted to depose him. He could have fought back with the power of incumbency, but he chose to bow out honourably, much to his opponents’ chagrin.
As election preparations for 2023 gain traction, the South is pushing for a power shift to the region when President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure ends in 2023, citing a gentleman’s agreement reached by APC stalwarts prior to the 2015 election that the party would cede its apex ticket to the South after Buhari.
According to a credible source, Jonathan was approached to jump ship to the APC so he could pick the party’s presidential ticket to win the 2023 election and hand over power to the North in 2027.
It is the northern calculation to maintain power for an extended period of time. However, the call for the presidential seat to be rotated to the South in 2023 is growing louder. As a result, they intend to use Jonathan as a very soft bride in order to quickly cross a very long ocean.
It should be noted that Jonathan has already served four years as president, making him the only candidate from the South who is not constitutionally permitted to serve eight years. So what they want to do now is use him to achieve that goal, so that after four years in power, power will shift to the North in 2027.
What are your thoughts on the APC Bigwig’s move towards Jonathan? Let’s talk about this.
