Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogbia ward 13, Bayelsa State, Mr. Igori Freedom, on Thursday confirmed that former President, Goodluck Jonathan, is a member of the party.
He briefly spoke with newsmen, saying: “I know too well that Jonathan registered with the APC, but the registration is not about publishing to the whole world. The register was with me, it was not only him that registered during that period.”
It was widely reported by newspapers on Wednesday that Jonathan has finally dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The former president’s close ally, who would not want his name in print, confirmed to newsmen on Wednesday night that Jonathan has finally made up his mind to vie for the presidency in 2023 on the platform of the APC.
Also, the former president was sighted with the national chairman of the APC on Tuesday, the day some northern groups bought the APC’s expression of interest and nomination forms for him to contest the presidential seat.
