2023: APC Speaks On Goodluck Jonathan’s Membership



The All Progressives Congress has broken silence on the report making rounds that the former president Goodluck Jonathan has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party for the ruling party.

The Chairman of the Bayelsa State Chapter of the APC, Dennis Otiotio on Tuesday stated that Jonathan has not joined the party.

He, however, said the ruling party is willing to receive the former president into their party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The APC Chairman stated this while reacting to the alleged presidential ambition of the former president on the platform of the ruling party.

Otiotio in his reaction said, “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.”

This comes after a coalition of northern groups purchased the APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms for Jonathan.

The former president, however, in a statement released through his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze dissociated himself from the purchase of the forms.

According to Eze, Jonathan did not authorise the purchase of the form of the ruling party.
