Jonathan Joins APC, Buys Presidential Forms 

 

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC)  and purchased the expression of interest and nomination forms for the 2023 presidential election.

 

This is coming after about two years of denial by his supporters that Jonathan won’t join the APC. 

 

It was gathered that 100 million have been paid and a group from the North picked the forms on behalf of Jonathan.

 

The forms making up of N70 million for the nomination and N30 million for the expression of interest were collected at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja.

 

Even though Jonathan has not announced he left the PDP, he has not also make comment on the purchase of the forms. 

 

Jonathan became President following the death of former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who died in 2010.

 

Jonathan contested the 2011 presidential election against then Gen Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and won but not without a crisis in the North.

 

Jonathan contested again in 2015 but lost to Buhari in 2015. 

 

Even though reports are suggesting that two influential governors from the North are behind the purchase of the 2023 presidential election forms for Jonathan, Elanza News sighted two letters from Heritage Bank informing the APC that Jonathan paid N30 million and N70 million respectively for the forms.
