Why Jonathan must reject APC presidential offer – Sagay

Prof. Itse Sagay, the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, on Sunday, warned President Goodluck Jonathan not to succumb to pressures on him to run for president again on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Sagay said he had heard rumours that some persons in the APC were prepping Jonathan to run along with Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe State and Chairman of the APC Caretaker Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC.

“Now we are hearing from the sides, former president, Goodluck Jonathan wants to join APC. Why would a man who had been president before denigrate himself to that level?”.

“I hear that the conspiracy is to bring in Jonathan as APC presidential candidate and Buni as the vice-presidential candidate.

“If APC wins, Jonathan will go away after four years and Buni becomes the president. That is the rumour I’m hearing now,” said Sagay.

Jonathan was Nigeria’s vice president in 2007 and he was later sworn in as president upon the death of President Umaru Yar’Adua. He failed in his return bid in 2015 due to his loss to President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 presidential election.
