The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, met with former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The APC standard bearer was accompanied to Jonathan’s residence in the federal capital territory (FCT) by Kashim Shettima, APC vice-presidential candidate; Dapo Abiodun, governor of Ogun; Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau; and Bello Matawalle, governor of Zamfara, among others.

Apart from a picture that surfaced online following the meeting, details of what was discussed are still under wraps.

In April, supporters of the former president — who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) — besieged his home in Abuja, calling on him to contest the 2023 presidential election.


In response, Jonathan said: “You are calling me to come and declare for the next election. I cannot tell you I’m declaring. The political process is ongoing. Just watch out.”

A few days later, a northern coalition bought the APC presidential expression of interest and nomination forms for Jonathan, but he turned down the gesture and denied approving the purchase.

The former president also failed to show up for the screening exercise of presidential candidates of the ruling party.
