Former President Goodluck Jonathan should be offended by rumors that he will run for President in 2023, according to Senator Adamu Muhammad Bulkachuwa of Bauchi North District.
In an interview with Arise TV, Bulkachuwa described the rumor of Goodluck Jonathan running for president under the All Progressives Congress as the “most odd thing he has heard.”
The politician questioned why Jonathan would leave a party that had groomed him “from a local government chairman to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and president.”
“I have to laugh because anybody that has been spreading this wild rumour about Goodluck Jonathan contesting the election under APC, I think this is the most bizarre thing I have ever heard. And if I were his relative or if I were him (Goodluck Jonathan), I would feel insulted.
“How could I have served as president under a party that groomed me from the chairman of a local government to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and to the position of the president, then abandon that party for the sake of what?
“What has he forgotten in the Villa that he wants to go back and take? I would feel insulted about all that rumour. In any case, I am very happy that this thing has turned out to be absolutely baseless. So, we should put it aside and make it a non-issue.”
