2023: APC supporters protest against Jonathan

Share This



The national secretariat of All Progressives Congress, APC, was, yesterday, besieged by scores of angry protesters who kicked against moves by the party leadership to woo former President Goodluck Jonathan into its fold, with a view to ceding the 2023 presidential ticket to him.

The protesters, under the aegis of APC North-South Patriotic Coalition, in a petition submitted to the party, noted that for the APC to maintain its winning streak, it must retrace its step “in order to avoid losing power in the next series of elections.”

Chairman of the coalition, Alhaji Toyin Rahim, who read the petition, said: “The rumour has been around for some time now that former President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP was being wooed by some power players within the APC to join the Party and fly its presidential ticket for the 2023 election.

“This Jonathan project cannot fly simply because it cannot help our party and we want to do our best to ensure that our party does not fall victim of ill-advised action that can push the party out of power.

“One of the most telling negative implications of such an action is that the APC does not have anyone of electoral value who can win election for us except we smuggle in a former president we defeated seven years ago for his glaring incompetence as president.

”In APC today, there are presidential aspirants with credible pedigrees and humongous electoral value and capacity.

“It is not only unnecessary to smuggle Jonathan into our great party, it is also self-indicting and meaning that our party’s performance in office has been worse than an administration that Nigerians thoroughly rejected and voted APC in 2015.”
