Ex- President Goodluck Jonathan decision  to consider joining All Progressive Congress ( APC) , as the party’s National Working Committee  (NWC) considers waivers for newcomers, has thrown the party into disarray.

This is coming as the camp of other top contenders, such as Senator Bola Tinubu, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Chief Rotimi Amaechi and others stakeholders are arms against any form of consensus that will sideline them for a Jonathan se candidacy.

The former president  allegedly insisted he would only be joining the APC  presidential race on the condition that he is endorsed by the President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jonathan on Friday told supporters who besieged his office in Abuja, asking him to run for the Presidency in 2023 that he cannot tell if he would run, advised them  to watch out.

The APC chieftain, who spoke on anonymity told  Bayelsa Times that Jonathan was seeking an assurance that he would be handed the party’s Presidential ticket.

His words: “Jonathan has already been President before. So, the APC cannot offer him anything except the Presidential ticket. Imagine him contesting against Osinbajo and Tinubu and losing? Wouldn’t that be disgraceful?

“So, he has made his position clear. If he is to come to the APC, he must be given the assurance that he will be given the party’s ticket, that is his demand.”

The source added that the former President may be sold as a “compromise candidate” amid the raging zoning debate in the country.
