Jonathan Is Still Floating, Not Yet Our Member, Says Bayelsa State APC Chairman

The Chairman, Bayelsa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Dennis Otiotio, on Tuesday said that former President Goodluck Jonathan is at liberty to join the party but has yet to do so.

Otiotio spoke against the backdrop of moves to draft Jonathan into the 2023 Presidential race, saying that the APC in Bayelsa State was not aware of Jonathan’s membership.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in a telephone interview that “the former President is not yet a registered member of APC. He is free to join any party of his choice.

“We are open and willing to receive him into our fold. As a political party desirous of winning elections, the only way to go is by admitting people into the party.”

A support group which claimed to be Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBA) had on Monday in Abuja purchased the APC Presidential nomination and expression of interest forms for the former president to contest the 2023 elections on the APC platform.

However, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, Media Adviser to Jonathan, in a statement on Monday night said the former President dissociated himself from the move.

He also said that Jonathan did not authorise the purchase of the form. (NAN)
