2023: I will quit politics if Jonathan joins APC to contest for presidency – Vatsa

Nationwide News Politics
A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Mr Jonathan Vatsa has vowed to quit politics if former President Goodluck Jonathan joins the party to vie for the presidential seat in 2023.
The former Commissioner for Information, Culture, and Tourism in Niger State made the remark while speaking with Channels Television on Thursday on his reaction to speculations that Jonathan is set to join the race under the banner of the ruling party.
“I pray it is a mere rumor or fake news; but if former President Goodluck Jonathan accepts to contest the forthcoming election and under APC, then I will agree with a former governor, who once said there is no morality in politics.
”I will not only leave the party, but I will also quit politics and go back to the farm,” he said.
Vatsa said that he was aware that the ruling party is desperate not to allow the power to return back to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023.
 “After our seven years of a disappointing performance in all aspects, the option of Jonathan should not be on our table”.
“We told Nigerians in 2015, that Jonathan was a devil, corrupt, and incompetent to address insecurity in the country, Jonathan is from a minority tribe and all manner of propaganda. Seven years after he is now an angel,” he said.
Vatsa who was also a former Publicity Secretary of the party in Niger State noted that the APC lied to Nigerians in 2015 in a desperate move to get the power by all means.
Such moves, he said, included the threat of violence which has now divided the country along ethnic and religious lines, adding that “this country has never been so divided as it is today”.
