Former Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan privatised the power sector

Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan appears to have officially joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a group under the aegis of ‘Fulani group’ presented him with the N100 million expression of interest and nomination forms.

Chronicle NG reports that Jonathan has now joined the ruling APC that defeated him in 2015 after five years in power although it is unclear when he registered as member.

On Monday, a spokesman for the ‘Fulani Group’, Mayor Samuel, who is also the convener of the Youth Compatriots of Nigeria said, “We were deceived and brainwashed by those who claimed they could do it in 2015.

“Now, we know better, under Jonathan the minimum wage could buy one or two bags of rice. What do we have today? We are begging President Jonathan to forgive us, we have realized our mistakes, we want him back to complete what he started.

Reacting after the presentation of the forms, Jonathan said I know you are “here to ask me to declare, I cannot declare because some process are still ongoing.”

“Yes you are calling me to come and declare for the next election, I cannot tell I’m declaring. The political process is ongoing just watch out. The key role you must play is that Nigeria must get somebody that will carry young people along.”

Jonathan is one of the new entrants including Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Minister of State Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, and Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State.

Chronicle NG reports that on April 22, 2022, protesters stormed the Abuja office of the former president, urging him to declare for 2023 presidential race.
