The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad on Monday claimed that former President Goodluck Jonathan has joined the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party.
Ahmad made this claim in a post on his Twitter account on Monday.
The presidential aide wrote: “So Goodluck Jonathan has dumped the opposition PDP and now a member of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
This is coming hours after a Coalition of Northern Groups on Monday picked up the presidential nomination and expression of interest form of the ruling APC for Jonathan.
Members of the coalition picked up the form for Jonathan at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
They described the former president as the most qualified politician to take Nigeria to the next level in 2023.
Members of the coalition were spotted wearing face caps and t-shirts with the inscription ‘run Jonathan run’.
Meanwhile, the former President is yet to officially announce his defection from PDP which gave him the platform to serve as President in 2011, before losing out in 2015 to President Muhammadu Buhari.
