The senator representing Bauchi North District, Adamu Muhammad Bulkachuwa, has asked former President Goodluck Jonathan to take it as an insult for being “rumoured” to be contesting for the presidential ticket again.
While speaking on Arise TV on Wednesday about issues surrounding the ruling party’s readiness ahead of its convention starting on June 6, Bulkachuwa said it is laughable that there is a rumour about Jonathan aspiring for the APC presidential ticket despite being groomed politically by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) up till he became president.

“I have to laugh because anybody that has been spreading this wild rumour about Goodluck Jonathan contesting the election under APC, I think this is the most bizarre thing I have ever heard. And if I were his relative or if I were him (Goodluck Jonathan), I would feel insulted.
“How could I have served as president under a party that groomed me from the chairman of a local government to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and to the position of the president, then abandon that party for the sake of what?
“What has he forgotten in the Villa that he wants to go back and take? I would feel insulted about all that rumour. In any case, I am very happy that this thing has turned out to be absolutely baseless. So, we should put it aside and make it a non-issue,” he said.
