Contrary to rumours making the rounds that former President Goodluck Jonathan has officially joined the governing All Progressives Congress and accepted the “pressure” on him to run for the office of the President in 2023, I have strong reasons that the first and only true PhD holder to rule Nigeria, might have abandoned the idea of returning to Aso Rock, at least at this time.

President Jonathan has not been in the country in the last two days and there is yet to emerge any credible evidence of his joining the governing All Progressives Congress or picking up or filling the presidential nomination forms.
