Former President Goodluck Jonathan has rejected the N100 million All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Expression of Interest and Nomination forms bought for him by a group of his supporters from the
north to contest the 2023 presidential election.
Jonathan’s Media Adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, in a statement on Monday, said it was an insult to buy the forms for him without his consent.
In recent months, there have been increased speculations about whether the former President will run for his old post in in the 2023 general elections and there have been calls for him to do so.
Although he is not a member of the APC, speculations have intensified in recent weeks that he is set to switch from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to contest for President in 2023.
But the former President has yet to state whether he would contest or not, neither has he spoken about the possibility of switching parties.
He was first elected in 2011 after completing the tenure of Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.
He was however defeated by President Muhammed Buhari in the 2015 presidential elections.
