The Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has opened up to the public concerning rumours going viral saying he is defecting to APC.
Goodluck Jonathan, the former President of Nigeria, has dismissed rumors that he is defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) (APC).
The Jonathan camp issued a new denial on Wednesday, after reports surfaced that the Bayelsa-born politician had defected from the PDP to the APC.
Severally, there have been rumours that Jonathan will dump the PDP for APC and contest the 2023 presidential election on the platform of the ruling party.
On Wednesday, the rumour mill went into overdrive that he has finally joined the APC, sparking anxiety from various quarters.
But when contacted for a reaction, the former president’s spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze said there is no truth in the defection rumours.
He added that his principal is very busy with other activities and should he decide to defect, it will be communicated through appropriate channels, and not the rumour mill.
“The report is Fake News, if he defects it would be announced through the proper channels.
“This is a man that’s very busy with other things,” he said.
Meanwhile, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over the plan to obtain fresh foreign loans of $4bn and €710m.
