Former president Goodluck Jonathan has denied purchasing any form to join the APC political party.

A Northern group on Monday, 9th of May, 2022 purchased the form for him, saying he has to contest for the forthcoming presidential election.

However, in a statement signed by his aide, the former president said he had no idea any form was purchased and did not authorize any group to purchase any form.

The statement reads;

“It has come to our notice that a group has purportedly purchased Presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest forms, of the All Progressives Congress APC, in the name of former President Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

We wish to categorically state that Dr. Jonathan was not aware of this bid and did not authorize it.

While we appreciate the overwhelming request by a cross-section of Nigerians, for Dr. Jonathan to make himself available for the 2023 Presidential election, we wish to state, that he has not in anyway, committed himself to this request.”
