Former President Goodluck Jonathan has officially joined the 2023 presidential race on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Jonathan’s entrance into the race followed the purchased of the APC’s expression of interest and nomination forms by a coalition northern groups on Monday in Abuja.
It has been rumoured that some power brokers within the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had been courting him to join the presidential race on the APC ticket.
Following the development, the party on Monday received N100m for the presidential form of the former President.
The coalition that bought the forms was said to be a group of supporters of Fulani extraction and Almajiris led by Ibrahim Abdullahi.
They picked the expression of interest and nomination forms for the former President around 6:30 pm.
Jonathan has not officially announced that he was dumping the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC.
At the time of filing this report, the former President had not made any comment on the forms purchased for him.
