The media team of Ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has debunked claims that he was about to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A statement signed by Reno Omokri reads: “Dr. Jonathan is known for his stability and loyalty. These are character traits that have been lifelong companions of his. He is also an elder statesman and that role requires that he accepts all Nigerian citizens, and indeed all the world’s peoples, in the spirit of the brotherhood of man’’.
“As an elder statesman and Chairman of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, Dr. Jonathan will receive people of goodwill who apply to pay him a courtesy visit, irrespective of their political or religious leanings. Though a Christian, he has received Muslim groups and other diverse visitors.”
“Dr. Jonathan intends to devote the rest of his life on earth to building unity and engendering opportunity for Nigerians and Africans and he has no desire, or reason to engage in partisan politics beyond being a loyal member of the People’s Democratic Party.”
“His being a member of the People’s Democratic Party is institutional. In fact, it is more accurate to state that his eternal party in Nigeria, for which he reminds all Nigerians that they are brothers and sisters born from the womb of one Nigeria.”
