National Coordinator, South-East APC Presidency Ptoject 2023, Dr Chinedu Jideofo-Ogbuagu, has called on former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, to join the APC to support the emergence of president of Nigeria of South-East extraction on APC platform in 2023.
Jideofo-Ogbuagu said that as South-Easterners heavily supported him in 2007-2015, Jonathan should, this time round, reciprocate that gesture.
In a statement titled: “THAT SUSPICION OF GOODLUCK JONATHAN DECAMPING TO APC TO CONTEST FOR 2023 PRESIDENCY”, issued on Saturday, he said: “That APC governors just visited Dr Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan on his 63rd birthday has fuelled speculations of his imminent defection to our party, All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Of course, Dr Jonathan is most welcome to jump the sinking PDP ship and join the roaring APC train. But not to contest for 2023 Presidency.
“People who love him must advise him not to entertain any divisive and dangerous thought of contesting for president of Nigeria in 2023.”
He stated further: “2023 is for South-East and no selfish or greedy person from anywhere should play the spoiler on the basis of any self-serving permutations.
“Dr Jonathan should join APC to support emergence of President of Nigeria of South-East extraction on APC platform in 2023 – as South-Easterners heavily supported him in 2007-2015.
“It is payback time, and he must not exhibit any treacherous trait against the South-East – no matter the temptation.”
