Breaking: Fulani group purchases APC Nomination form for Jonathan
As the 2023 presidential election approaches, a group calling itself the "Fulani group" has paid N100 million for nominations and expressions of interest forms for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Recall that on April 22, 2022, demonstrators invaded Jonathan's Abuja private office, pushing him to declare for the 2023 presidential election.
"We were duped and brainwashed by people who promised they could achieve it in 2015," said Mayor Samuel, who is also the convener of the Youth Compatriots of Nigeria.
“Now, we know better. Under Jonathan, the minimum wage could buy one or two bags of rice. What do we have today? We are begging President Jonathan to forgive us. We have realized our mistakes. We want him back to complete what he started.
Reacting, Jonathan said, I know you are “here to ask me to declare. I cannot declare because some processes are still ongoing.”
“Yes you are calling me to come and declare for the next election, I cannot tell I’m declaring. The political process is ongoing just watch out. The key role you must play is that Nigeria must get somebody that will carry young people along.”
Today, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, and Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade, equally purchased their nomination forms in Abuja.
Others that have been picked under the APC include: the minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello; and others.
