As the May 30 Presidential primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC, draws near, a political pressure group, Save Nigeria-Buhari Ambassadors, SNBA, Wednesday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to adopt his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan as consensus candidate of the ruling party.

This is as the group said the call is premised on Jonathan’s enviable qualities as a seasoned democrat who always put the nation’s interest above personal considerations.

Addressing a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Conference Room, Abuja, national coordinator of the group, Hon. Jazeel Jamil Ibrahim described the former President as a true leader who stands for the unification of the country “as exemplified in 2015 when he shelved his personal ambition to avert a looming crisis, declaring that his ambition was not worth the blood of any Nigerian.”

The text of the conference read in part: “We wish to call on Mr. President to look inward with his eagle’s eyes and single out Dr. Goodluck Jonathan from the hustling crowd of aspirants canvassing for the Office of the President of Nigeria as a candidate to fly the flag of the APC in 2023 Presidential election.

“Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has established himself as a true democrat , a peace ambassador and a patriotic Nigerian who stand for the unification and cementing of the already fragmented pieces called Nigeria as one indivisible nation.

“Jonathan has high level of integrity and credibility. He is a sound academician, an egg head with capacity to revamp and revive any economy.

“He is a secured leader who tenaciously and systematically drives with passion his overwhelming commitment to change the global negative perceptions of the Nigerian elections by reforming the electoral process and establishing a culture of non-violent, free, fair and credible elections.”

Fielding questions from journalists on the sideline of the press conference, Hon. Ibrahim affirmed the remark credited to Igiri Freeman, Chairman of APC, Ogbia Ward 13, Bayelsa state that Dr. Jonathan indeed registered with the APC in 2019, four years after losing to Muhammadu Buhari.

A Fulani group recently purchased a Presidential nomination form for the ex-President for a fee of N100m; a development that attracted diverse reactions from Nigerians. While Jonathan quickly issued a statement denying knowledge of the form obtained on his behalf, he has since visited APC national chairman, Senator Abdulllahi Adamu, thus fuelling speculations that President Buhari is likely to back him for the exalted office.

Why the desperate clamouring for the candidacy of Jonathan Goodluck???
The Fulanis knew quite well, they'll be able to do whatever suits them under him.
They see him as moron and idiot.
If he was doing well, then why voting him out for Mr No Clue Buhari. Some years ago. Buhari and you Fulanis did everything humanly possible to make Nigeria ungovernable for Jonathan Goodluck. How come within a twinkle of an eye, he has became your political bride.
You're behaving like a drwoning man who is desperate to cling on to any tree branch that could save him from being swept off by the river.
Stop showing how desperate you're to cling on to power.
Whether you like it or nor Buhari has wasted your 8 years slot. Go and queue for your next slot. Also he has succeeded in making you all look hopeless by being the worst president Nigeria has ever produced.

Much as NDIGBO love Goodluck Jonathan we will not hesitate to hate him if he gives in to the antics of the North. Let him try it.

But Jonathan was not a good leader. You check the  amount of funds stolen under his administration by Dazukie and others, its incomparable to even late Sani. No Jonathan  should never again be allowed to mismanage  Nigeria. Just wondering why the EFCC has never  got to his door, To even talk about this is heart rendering. You mean Nigerians with the top talk about  higher education still  remain in the stone age of thinking. This country is unfortunate and very sad place to live.

he was never a good leader but a partner in corruption.Jonathan aides had free hand stealing the country dry and setting Nigeria in its current debt crisis .The Hausas believe Jonathan is a patriot because they fear if leadership slip into the hand of a true nationalist they will be shut out .Nigeria next President must be an igbo extraction .And the president duty is to draw the demarcation line for intruders.No open grazing , no donkeys and cows roaming our inhabitantt forest ,no religion extremism will be tolerated ,all borders leading to northern parts of Nigeria from neighboring countries should be manned by security personnel from the south .Porosity of our borders is given way to armed trades and movement of Islamic extremist but our Hausa brothers are sympathizers to this movement,making it a difficult task for government to stop
