The leader of the Grassroot Network for Asiwaju Tinubu group, Mr Abiodun Mafe, said that Jonathan was not known to be a member of the APC hence he could not be the presidential candidate of the party.
“Jonathan has never been a member of the APC, so how will it be possible for anyone to say that he will be made a consensus candidate? Until he now proves to the whole world that he is a card-carrying member of the APC, it can’t be. Even at that, there is a process.
Constitutionally, anybody who is a member of the APC has the right to contest but as far as I am concerned Jonathan is not a part,” Mafe stated.
Goodluck Jonathan last week, was asked by a political group to run for the highest seat of power in Nigeria.
Although, Mr. Jonathan did not accept nor reject the plea, but he said he is still making consultation(s).
Jonathan has been absent from all PDP gatherings for the past two years, it is unclear if he has switched allegiance to the APC, the party he once condemned.
