Former President Goodluck Jonathan has told his supporters calling on him to run for the 2023 presidency to “watch out.”
Daily Trust had reported how some of his supporters stormed his Abuja office yesterday, asking him to declare for the 2023 presidency.
They wielded placards and banners with inscriptions such as “Goodluck Jonathan Must Run for President, 2023 and “Jonathan is our Candidate,” among others.
The ex-president had gone into a closed-door meeting with the leaders of the group.
Addressing the supporters after the meeting, Jonathan said the youths should keep getting involved in the political process for a better Nigeria.
The ex-president said, “You are calling me to declare for the next election. I cannot tell you I am declaring. The political process is ongoing, so just watch out. The key role you must play is to pray that Nigeria gets somebody that carries the young people along; somebody that can also work very hard to see that some of the problems are addressed by the government; and I believe we will work together.”
