A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Garus Gololo has told Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, the former president, to be careful with the APC Governors hanging around him as the 2023 polls draw closer.
Switch Nigeria reported that some APC governors paid a courtesy visit to Jonathan at his Abuja residence on Saturday as he celebrated his 63rd birthday.
There have been rumours that some persons are wooing Dr. Jonathan to contest the 2023 presidential elections, but Dr. Gololo believes it will be wrong move as he will not win.
He said, “they were there on their own. Nobody sent them. They are busy body Governors. They abandoned the business of governance in their States and be chasing shadows.”
“Who told them Jonathan will win any election again in Nigeria? And who told them we are in shortage of candidates in APC? At the appointed time they shall be shocked by the arrays of capable personalities that would indicate interest in 2023.”
“I’m not a prophet but I know that those Governors will soon dump him. They all have their ambitions and interests in their pockets, yet, they will not allow Jonathan to rest. If he (Jonathan) truly wants to remain a hero, he should just retire and watch from the background. He has tried by conceding defeat in 2015. That’s a great achievement. That is what the whole President of America, Donald Trump cannot have the courage to do. But let him not disgrace himself by running for 2023, because he can’t even win any election in Nigeria again.”
“Nigerians won’t vote for anyone who has been tested in any office before. We want a more capable hand, a fresh hand with fresh ideas. Those Governors don’t own their States, they have just only one vote. Let Jonathan know this and save himself of the embarrassment”, Gololo added.
