Jonathan with APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu in Abuja

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday evening visited the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Adamu, a few hours after a group under the aegis of ‘Fulani Group’ bought the ruling party’s N100 million nominations and expression of interest forms to run for the presidency in 2023.

The supporters’ group purchased the nomination form on his behalf on Monday – the latest method allegedly adopted by aspirants using proxies to buy the form.

Jonathan was Nigeria’s president between 2010 and 2015 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).

He lost power to the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari, who ran on the ticket of the APC.


In April, the former president told a group of supporters who visited him at his Abuja office that he had not decided whether to join the presidential race or not. He asked them to watch out for his next moves.

“Yes, you are calling me to come and declare for the 2023 presidency, yes I can’t tell you am declaring, the political process is ongoing, just watch out.
