Confusion as advisers give Jonathan feedback from Buhari, APC leadership

Nationwide News Politics
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has continued to dominate discusssions as the All Progressive Congress, APC primary election draws near, and no greenlight from President Muhammadu Buhari
Jonathan is eyeing the presidency aeight years after leaving the office and he’s banking on  Buhari for an automatic ticket as Jonathan dumps his party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling APC.
Some reports trending in the media claimed sources close to the ex-president said on Saturday in Abuja that many of his leading advisers and ex-ministers have told Jnathan to perish the thought.
According to them, the signs from Aso Rock and the APC leadership don’t call for any hope of an automatic ticket—the condition Jonathan allegedly gave those who dangled the carrot before him.
The advisers said that Jonathan was directed to “go and try his luck” like other aspirants.
The APC national leader Bola Tinubu, V.P Yemi Osinbajo, Minister Rotimi Amaechi, and others have declared their intentions to scramble for the party ticket.
None of these aspirants is willig to give Jonathan a chance as a consensus, according to the advisers.
“Up till Wednesday, he had not got a firm commitment either from Buhari or APC to be the consensus candidate,” the newspaper quoted a source.
“He is also not in a position to win the APC presidential primaries because he has no structure in place barely a month to the primaries.
“In fairness, we felt there was no possibility of wielding the state apparatchik in his favour to earn the APC presidential ticket.”
