Goodluck Jonathan speaks on his return as president in 2023

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the Former President of Nigeria, has said that it is too early to talk about returning to office in 2023.

Recall that speculations have been flying about, linking the Bayelsa-born politician to a possible return to the office he left 5 years ago.

However, the speculations may have to continue as Jonathan could not give a definite position on his rumoured ambition.

Speaking briefly with reporters on Friday after attending an event organised by the Commonwealth Community Choir in Abuja, the nation’s capital, Jonathan was asked if he would be joining the presidential race for 2023, and he said, “It is too early to talk about that.”

It was President Muhammadu Buhari who defeated the then incumbent President, Jonathan in 2015.

Recently some governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and chieftains of the party visted him, as pressure continues to mount on him to contest the 2023 election.

The visit was at Jonathan’s Abuja residence to felicitate with him on his 63rd birthday anniversary.
