Jonathan now a progressive, works for us. APC taunts PDP

All Progressives Congress says ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is a “progressive person” who now works for the ruling party.

Speaking during a programme on Channels Television on Friday, Yekini Nabena, APC deputy national publicity secretary, said his party is not desperate to hold on to power.

He said, “We are not desperate. Goodluck Jonathan has been working for this government, he has been going to all African countries. If he is not a progressive person, he won’t have been working for this government.

“We agree that there has been issues of insecurity in Nigeria. These things have been there before. We are working on it. It’s not a day job. We are working so hard to correct that. What political parties like PDP do is to destabilise your government because they want to come back to power by any means. #EndSARS is the work of the PDP.”

Last week, the media was awash with reports on how governors of the APC had been romancing Jonathan ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

They had visited the ex-president at his Abuja residence in commemoration of his birthday but also held a private meeting with him.

Issues discussed at the meeting were not made public but it was gathered they centred on 2023.

No member of the PDP attended the meeting but David Umahi, governor of Ebonyi state, who recently defected from the PDP to the APC was there.
