|2023 presidency: We’ll give Jonathan chance to contest -APC by BMZK: 5:06pm On Sep 16, 2021|
The All Progressives Congress says former President Goodluck Jonathan will be given an opportunity to contest for the 2023 presidency if he joins the ruling party.
The National Secretary, APC Caretaker, and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, said this while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.
He said this when asked about the speculations that Jonathan is considering to join the ruling party.
The APC official also said the ex-president will be granted a founding member status if he joins.
He, however, said the opportunity that will be given to Jonathan is not automatic, noting that he would compete with other members of the party before getting the ticket.
Akpanudoedehe said, “I am hearing that for the first time that we are expecting the former President. That will be great news. We will welcome him; that will also strengthen the party.
“The last National Executive Council of the party actually gave a blanket approval to any individual that if you join APC today, it is as if you are a founding member of the party.
