2023: Jonathan Promised Presidential Nomination Form

 Goodluck Jonathan has been offered the expression of interest and nomination forms of any political party of his choice.

The Middle Belt Progressive Forum made the offer in a statement issued by its convener, Paul Agada, on Tuesday, Naija News reports. Agada stressed that the former president has the support of the forum should he decide to join the 2023 presidential race. He stated that Jonathan is a man of peace who has shown that his ambition is not above the peace and stability of the country, adding that his rare qualities have earned the forum’s backing. Agada pointed out that the former Nigerian leader has the experience and capacity above all the aspirants contesting the 2023 presidential election. He, however, appealed to Jonathan to indicate an interest in running for the presidency. The statement reads: “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is a man of peace who has demonstrated in times past that he does not place his ambition over the peace and stability of the country,” he said. “This rare quality has seen him gain recognition as a peacemaker and key negotiator in conflicts across the African continent. “Jonathan is fondly remembered for the establishment of much-needed Federal Universities in Lokoja and Lafia in Kogi and Nasarawa States respectively. Also, he approved the release of N30 billion from the Subsidy Reinvestment Programme fund to finance the Loko-Owego Bridge project to link Benue and Nasarawa States, a project that has now been completed by the current administration. “The Middle Belt Progressive Forum has a robust membership spread across the states of the Middle Belt and the country at large and we have agreed that former President Goodluck Jonathan stands heads and shoulders in terms of experience and capacity above all the numerous aspirants jostling for the tickets of various parties hence our resolve to purchase the nomination form of whichever party he chooses. “We hereby urge him to heed the call of the Middle Belt Progressive Forum and teeming millions of Nigerians across the country and in the diaspora without further delay.”
