APC Governors Swoop On Jonathan Ahead Of 2023 Elections by kahal29: 11:07pm On Nov 20
Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held a private meeting with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on Friday evening, TheCable can report.

No single member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was present.

Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe state and acting national chairman of the APC, led the governors to Jonathan’s residence in Abuja.

David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi who recently defected to the APC from the PDP; Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum; and Abubakar Badaru, governor of Jigawa, were at the meeting, TheCable was informed.


Also in the team was Kashim Ibrahim-Imam, former presidential liaison officer to the national assembly.

It is unclear what the focus of their discussion was but an insider told TheCable “2023 permutations are taking shape”.

Jonathan was elected president in 2011 and lost to Buhari in 2015, but he is still qualified to run having only spent one term of four years in office.

Coincidentally, Jonathan hosted the duo of Badaru and Bagudu at his Otuoke residence in Bayelsa a year ago.

The governors had visited Jonathan to thank him for his support in the victory of David Lyon, the APC candidate in the 2019 governorship election in Bayelsa.

Lyon was eventually sacked by the supreme court while Douye Diri of the PDP was declared winner of the election.

On Friday, APC leaders, including Ken Nnamani, a former senate president, visited Jonathan in commemoration of his 63rd birthday.

They held a private meeting with the ex-president during the visit which held after the Northern Governors’ Forum congratulated Jonathan on his birthday.

The Northern Governors Forum had sent warm felicitations to Jonathan on his birthday.

In a statement, Simon Lalong, chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau, said the former president has continued to serve the country with zeal and commitment.

He described Jonathan as a true democrat whose “passion for the growth of democracy is reflected not only in his records while in office but also of his current engagements where he has travelled round the world to monitor elections and also engage with stakeholders”.

Lalong also saluted the former president’s patriotism and dedication to the unity, peace and development of Nigeria as well as offering counsel on various issues.

He asked him to remain focused on his life of service that has brought honour and goodwill to Nigeria.

President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier felicitated with Jonathan, saying he has brought honour to Nigeria.

They are all looking for the normal lukewarm character to handover to, hoping he will not rock the boat for 4 years since he can't go for a second term! They will then swoop back to power just to continue from where they stopped. In their minds, we all must be fools.. but Is that Jonathan that daft? Is he so unconcerned with his immediate environment that after seeing all that Buhari has done, he is willing to allow himself to be used by the same people to achieve the same results? What kind of wack patriotism is that?

GEJ pls go for it. Let 2027 take care of itself!
For those arguing otherwise, GEJ will galvanise the country and have time to re-energise confab 2014 report.

PS: This is to all of your objecting to my post here.
Know it that Nigeria and particularly the South owe the North one more term. Let the North complete their term by taking power in 2027 and keep it for 8 years for equity sake!
South had Obj for 8 yrs, then GEJ 6 years. That is 14 years. North would only have done 10 years by 2023, Buhari 8 and Yardua 2. Let equity rein.
GEJ all the way!

Hmmmmmmm.

It be like Pdp is finally dead and buried in Nigeria.

2023 would be the final burial.

Wike's attitude/hijacking of the party is making everyone tear race... Mind you, SE governors might have been silent about Oyigbo's case but they have their grudges with the way Wike handled the situation

GEJ is out of the 2023 though...

They are making a move that will swing power back to the North after four year's.

See permutation.The southerners in their small mind see the northerners as illiterates,but they are wrong.These guys are smart when it comes to politicking.

They unite to get power,while southern trabalistic zombies fight to the death,just to show how superior a tribe is over another tribe.Even when we know they don't love themselves.

I hope Jonathan will convince skeptics that though he is a man of peace he is also a man of principle. The north is looking for the shortest route back to power and that is Jonathan -a half spent force

Stop dreaming

Jonathan can never contest again

If he ever does, then he has no regards for himself or whatever he represents.

If i be Jonathan, i will gladly accept the offer. I go show the north shege in my second coming, ensure the country is restructured and probably allow Biafra go. But the Jonathan that i know, got no balls sadly.

These guys want to give Racoon and Farahaideed a heart attack.

I couldn't care less the outcome of their advances anyway. Whether he declines or accepts their offers, that's up to them. Thieving pricks.

Country's in shambles, economy in tatters, yet all they care about is poaching one another to swell their party ranks.

Pathetic.

Oh shut up for the love of Christ.

Go follow your Kanu and prosecute his biafra dreams. He has ordered that his adherents cut off Wike's head. What efforts have you made in that regard? Always poking your nose in Nigerian business. I bet sometimes you forget you revealed you're an Nnamdi Kanu fanatic.

Nothing ooo, I think that's his point...

Seems they don't want to lose power for too long. Get Jonathan to return, he can't do another term, so the 2027 goes back to a northern candidate.

They are just power drunk.

I hope we all agree to no recycling of past politicians in 2023, we want a new face and we should vote a new face while standing by our votes.
