Defection Of Former President Jonathan To APC Unfortunate, Says MBF
The Middle Belt Forum, MBF, has described as ‘unfortunate’ the purported defection of former President Jonathan to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Forum noted that by his action, Jonathan would lose the goodwill he enjoys among Nigerians, who regard him as a reference point for good governance in the country.
MBF National Treasurer, Chief Ben Akaakar, said: “It is unfortunate that he is joining the people that have destroyed the legacies that he left for Nigerians as President of the country. He should know that if he actually defects to the APC, he will never be a reference point for good governance in the country anymore especially with the lack-luster performance of the ruling APC.
“So, his defection will be a disappointment for Nigerians, who have been lamenting the maladministration of the APC and demanding that the party return the country to the pre-2015 era.”
NewsBeatng reports that there are speculations that Jonathan had dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC so as to contest for President in 2023.
Two days ago a fulani group bought the N100million APC presidential form for Jonathan but the form was later rejected by him.
In a statement issued by Ikechukwu Eze, the spokesman of former President Jonathan, the former President was not in the know of the purchase of the forms.
