Jonathan, Emefiele Fail To Submit Forms As Osinbajo, Tinubu, Others Return Forms by Forzs: 4:37am On May 14
Twenty-five of the 29 presidential aspirants that purchased the All Progressives Congress (APC) expression of interest and nomination forms are now in the frame to face the party’s screening panel later today having submitted their completed forms at press time last night.


The screening will last two days ahead of the primary slated for May 28.

Those who beat the deadline yesterday include Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; President African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwunmi Adesina; immediate past Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu and Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

But the same could not be said of former President Goodluck Jonathan and Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele both of whom did not turn in the forms bought for them by “friends and well-wishers.”

A source at the APC national secretariat said the two men “have up till midnight to submit their forms. But as at 9 pm, we have not seen them or their agents.”

Simultaneously, a group approached a Federal High Court, Abuja praying it to bar the former president from participating as a candidate in the next presidential election, while a Delta State High Court, Kwale, restrained the board of the CBN and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from stopping Emefile from seeking an elective post.

The Nation gathered that the legal directorate of the party on Thursday began the vetting of documents submitted by all aspirants with a view to determining the authenticity of the papers.

A source in the department said the party leadership learnt a big lesson from the last minute disqualification of the party’s governorship candidate and his deputy in Bayelsa State due to some lapses in the documentation of the then deputy governor-elect.

“We are going through all the papers filed by all the aspirants in order to avoid any avoidable mistakes. Anyone with past criminal records or convictions will not be allowed to contest. We want to mitigate any post-election litigation that can upturn our victory,” the source said.

Other presidential aspirants whose nomination forms were received at press time were former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; former Minister of Niger Delta Development, Sen. Godswill Akpabio; former Imo State governor, Sen. Rochas Okorocha; and former Ogun State governor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun.

Others were Pastor Tunde Bakare; Cross River State governor, Prof. Ben Ayade; his Ebonyi State counterpart, Gov. Dave Umahi; Chairman, Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) and Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi; Minister of State, Education, Hon. Emeka Nwajiuba; former Senate President, Sen. Ken Nnamani; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; Jigawa State Governor Mohammed Badaru Abubakar and former Zamfara State governor, Sen. Ahmed Yerima.


Also on the list of presidential aspirants that filed their papers were Senator Ajayi Borroffice; the only female aspirant, Mrs Uju Kennedy Ohnenye; Pastor Nicholas Felix Nwagbo; former House of Representative Speaker Dimeji Bankole; former Minister of State, Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva; former Minister of Information, Chief Ikeobasi Mokelu; and Mr Tein Jack Rich.

Emefiele steps back from presidential contest

Central Bank (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele remained at his desk at the Abuja headquarters of the apex bank last night with no official word from him on his perceived presidential ambition.

Although sources close to his office said a statement would be issued to categorically state Emefiele’s position on the presidential race, there was no such statement at press time.

A CBN source said the governor was “on his seat in his office attending to official matters”.

The source said CBN officials were busy making arrangements for the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) scheduled for next week.

Emefiele, during a visit to President Buhari on Thursday, told reporters to ‘expect news’. He said he was having fun with speculations about his presidential ambition.

Jonathan was just too naive to allow some myopic elements in the apc to deceive him in the first place, he really shows that he is a man without principle,for lobbying to be adopted as apc's candidate instead of him to fight for it in pdp, how I wished he continues in pursuing this apc's dream of his to meet his final Waterloo. Anyway, Osinbajo for the cup, you can still join the moving train now before it gets to the final station.

GEJ is a wise man, Wise men are men of few words, when rumours come they neither deny nor accept they just live their lives and allow things play out.
You hear one Bashir claim He is now an APC member, next thing APC chairman in Bayelsa will say He is not yet their member, but his action of not submitting a form He did not buy should tell you are a dumbo.

The backers of GEJ and Emefiele couldn't get
PMB to support their consensus candidate bid.
Osibanjo or Tinubu is very likely to emerge as
the presidential candidate of APC.Amaechi or
Ahmed Lawan may pull a surprise in the event
of unexpected political maneuvering by the
Presidency and northern cabal.

They were stewpid for coming up with such an idea. How could they expect him to sell such an idea to Millions of party members? Only a selfish President, who cares less about the stability of his party, would subscribe to such.

That obviously was why Buni was stalling the convention.

Precisely what I argued from the beginning. Yet hate of some individuals has totally blinded many Nigerians from seeing what is possible and what is outrightly impossible.

Buhari may be desperate to stop BAT but can such desperation ever be allowed to extend towards the destruction of the APC which the adoption of GEJ would cause?

Many Nigerians clearly no longer think about what they back or speak in support of in their desperation to see only certain outcomes become reality.

I pity all those who fell for the charade because of hatred for Tinubu.

They will still find something foolish again to keep their hatred going this week, until Tinubu eventually become the APC candidate due to his command of political loyalty within the party nationwide.

All these online miscreants saying, "Fulani want to use GEJ to teach Tinubu, Yoruba a bitter lesson, where are you now ?

Hate has really finished some people sense of reasoning, most especially, our brothers from the SE, pls stop the hate !

Instead, market your own candidate, and let the people see the reasons they should vote your candidate.

Not by demonizing other candidates, the last time I checked, nobody has stop the igbos from contesting any elective positions !

Jonathan has successfully disgraced himself or allowed the Fulani herdsmen to disgrace him.
Instead of him to have publicly denied APC and dissociate himself from the blood sucking party.
But wey mama Patience self ?

That's because Jonathan wasn't contesting in the first place.Reno Omokri,a man very close him said it repeatedly,yet some of you allowed yourselves to be swayed by the APC shenanigans.

Our politicians know Nigerians love drama,and they gave y'all full dose of it.
