Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday said he is still watching ongoing political activities in the country before taking a decision on his reported 2023 presidential ambition.
Jonathan, who spoke when hundreds of supporters stormed his office in Abuja, said he was aware that they were “here to ask me to declare.
“I cannot declare because some processes are still ongoing,” the former president said.
“Yes, you are calling me to come and declare for the next election, I cannot tell I’m declaring. The political process is ongoing just watch out. The key role you must play is that Nigeria must get somebody that will carry young people along,” he added.
PlatinumPost reports that after chanting and screaming his name for several minutes, the Jonathan’s supporters said he is the only one that can fix the country at the moment and urged to run in the 2023 presidential election.
A spokesman for the group, Mayor Samuel, who is also the convener of the Youth Compatriots of Nigeria said, “We were deceived and brainwashed by those who claimed they could do it in 2015.
“Now, we know better, under Jonathan the minimum wage could buy one or two bags of rice. What do we have today? We are begging President Jonathan to forgive us, we have realized our mistakes, we want him back to complete what he started.
