Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has reportedly submitted his All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.
According to a report by SaharaReporters monitored by Newsbreak on Thursday, Jonathan submitted the N100 million forms a few days earlier to the National Chairman of the ruling party, Abdullahi Adamu.
“His form has secretly been submitted. He submitted his nomination form through the APC Chairman a few days ago,” a source in the ruling party privy to information said.
“Members of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabal are still pushing for Jonathan to become the party’s consensus candidate.”
Recall Jonathan had recently rejected the presidential form of the ruling APC purchased for him purportedly by a group of supporters from the northern region.
Speaking through his Media Adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, the former president had said it was an insult for the group to have bought him the forms without his permission.
Also, Newsbreak.ng reports that Federal High Court sitting in Yenegoa, Bayelsa State would on Friday rule that Jonathan is “constitutionally” qualified to contest for president in 2023.
