Goodluck Jonathan Refuses to be Clear on His 2023 Presidential Ambition
Former Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, on Friday, refused to be clear on his rumoured interest to contest for the presidency in 2023.
The former president only reiterated that his interest in contesting in the 2023 presidential election was “mere speculation”, refusing to state whether he would contest or not.
He stated this when he paid a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State at Government House, Asaba, over the recent demise of his father, Sir Okorie Okowa.
He said, “On the rumour of my interest in the 2023 presidential election, it is mere speculation. I will continue to serve God, humanity, Africa and the world to the best of his ability and with all sense of commitment and sincerity.”
On insecurity, he called for synergy between President Muhammadu Buhari, state governors, security chiefs and other stakeholders, insisting that such would de-escalate tension occasioned by the challenge of insecurity in the country.
“I believe that with the commitment of the governors and the Federal Government, we will be able to address the issue of insecurity in the country. I believe that the President himself is not sleeping and that the governors are not sleeping as well over the insecurity challenge in the country.
“As long as the governors, the President and all the security agencies can work together, Nigeria will be able to cross over this very ugly phase of societal evolution,” he said.
