Former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, confirms his ex-boss, Jonathan, set to declare for 2023 presidential race on APC platform


A former presidential spokesperson, Mr Reuben Abati, has confirmed that his ex-principal, Goodluck Jonathan, is set to move into the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Abati said Jonathan would thereafter declare for presidency on the platform of the governing party.

Sundry media reports had insinuated that the former president had given the APC a set of conditions towards consummating his candidature.

Specifically, Jonathan, who is believed to be one of the preferred, perhaps the most preferred of the pack, had indicated that he would only join the party if he would get the presidential ticket seamlessly to run for president in 2023.

As a prelude yo the crystallisation of the Jonathan-for- president project, some protesters had stormed the Abuja private office of the former president, asking him to declare for presidency.

Jonathan, while addressing the protesters, had said he could not confirm yet if he would contest but said a political process was ongoing and that they should watch out.

However, Abati in a post on his verified Facebook page said Jonathan had accepted to join the APC to pursue his presidential ambition.
