2023: Give Jonathan an APC ticket or risk losing the election

Anything but a Goodluck Jonathan ticket will see the All Progressives Congress (APC) lose the 2023 presidential election, a political group, Citizens Network for Peace and Development in Nigeria (CNPD) Citizens Network for Peace and Development in Nigeria (CNPD) has said. The group advised APC leaders to use the former president, whom it described as the “godfather”, for the job of retaining power in 2023. The CNPD made the call at a press conference in Abuja on Monday. The call comes just three days after Jonathan told some young people that he still has a decision to make regarding the presidential election. The group had visited the former president to persuade him to run. Jonathan was chairman of the PDP’s bid between 2010 and 2025 when he was defeated by current APC chairman Muhammadu Buhari. The CNPD’s message is no different. While the group emphasized the need to persuade Jonathan to come forward, it said such a decision “requires a lot of consultation and compromise.” Addressing reporters, the group’s national coordinator, Raphael Okorie, expressed concern over Jonathan’s delay in joining the presidential race and promised that the CNPD “will not sit back without taking some strategic steps to ensure this vision is achieved.” . “Allowing candidates without a clear vision, especially those who have shown interest so far, to enter the Village in 2023, would not only be suicidal, but we would be just as guilty as those who aid and support incompetence over competition,” he said. He also assured that Mr. Jonathan, if elected, would not only improve the economic, foreign and security policy situation, but also provide a favorable environment for national engagement and dialogue. “Critical review of the list of presidential candidates from the two main political parties, we are convinced that all the other candidates are regional champions. “…therefore, it is imperative that Dr. Adamu use the best man for the job to win this election, considering that anything short of a GEJ ticket will cost APC the presidency in 2023.” Therefore, he asked President Muhammadu Buhari to endorse the Jonathan project due to his experience and the need for continuity. When asked if the former president had informed the group of his decision to join APC, Okorie said he couldn’t confirm the situation because he hadn’t seen Jonathan’s APC membership form yet. However, he assured that “inquiries are being made to ensure that he (Jonathan) joins the APC and gets the ticket.” Read More Related News Here Let here it in the comment below if you do have an opinion on this; 2023: Give Jonathan an APC ticket or risk losing the election
