The news surfaced last night that Nigeria’s former president had purchased the ruling party’s expression of interest and nomination form.
A few hours later, another source stated that Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria had purchased the N100 million form.
Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe, Nigeria’s Vice President, claimed he was unaware of the expression of interest and nomination form.
MACBAN, a Fulani herdsmen advocacy group in Nigeria, also declined and said they didn’t purchase an APC presidential nomination form for Jonathan.
Who bought form for Jonathan?This is a question that many Nigerians are asking right now.
After further inquiry, it was discovered that a governor of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) actually bought former President Goodluck Jonathan’s nomination and expression of interest forms.
This revelation was made known to the Daily Trust by several sources in northern Nigeria.
The newspaper magazine reports that one of the current northern governors deposited N100 million into the APC Collection Account at Heritage Bank on Monday.
According to the Daily Trust, Jonathan’s homecoming bid is being planned by two powerful governors from the country’s northern region.
According to the news agency, the two governors, who are close to President Muhammadu Buhari, have acquired the support of a portion of the government in order to carry out their plan to draft former President Goodluck Jonathan into the presidential contest.
MandyNews has learnt that one of the governors is from the North West while the other is from the North East geopolitical zone.
On Monday, the 64-year-old lawmaker from Bayelsa met with Senator Abdullahi, the new national chairman of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
