The National Secretary, APC Caretaker, and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe has said Former President Goodluck Jonathan will be allowed to contest should he join the APC.
Akpanudoedehe who was speaking on Channels Television said, “I am hearing that for the first time that we are expecting the former President. That will be great news. We will welcome him; that will also strengthen the party.
“The last National Executive Council of the party actually gave a blanket approval to any individual that if you join APC today, it is as if you are a founding member of the party.
“So, anyone who joins today has the same opportunity to run for any office in this party. It has always been so, so I am not speculating,” he added.
