Former militant leader, Asari Dokubo has advised former President Goodluck Jonathan not to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dokubo said the plan to draft Jonathan into the presidential race under the platform of the ruling party is an attempt to ridicule the former president.
In a Facebook Live on Wednesday, the repentant militant said he was not in support of the former President joining the APC and contesting for presidency under the party. He, however, asked Jonathan to join other opposition parties if he wants to return to power in 2023.
“I am not in support of Goodluck coming to contest election under the APC. 100%, I’m not in support. Because many of his followers fought the APC government and had gone hungry throughout this period, without any aid from him. And without consultation, he will just come out.
“If Goodluck wants to stage a comeback, let him go to other political parties: YPP, SDP, etc. Why should he want somebody to anoint him before he contests the election?” Dokubo queried.
Best News Network recalls that a Northern group had on Monday obtained the APC N100m expression of interest and nomination forms for Jonathan. But in a statement by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, the former President disowned the group, saying he did not authorise them to obtain the forms on his behalf.
