Goodluck Jonathan, the former Nigeria president appears to be unclear at the moment about his return to office in 2023 when President Muhammadu Buhari exits office in 2023.
Speculations that the former president may take over office from President Buhari, who succeeded him in 2015, may not end soon as Dr Jonathan could not give a definite position on his rumoured ambition.
He had a brief session with reporters on Friday, December 4 after attending an event organised by the Commonwealth Community Choir in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
When asked if he would be joining the presidential race in the 2023 general elections, Dr Jonathan said, “It is too early to talk about that.”
It would be recalled that APC governors visited the former president in Bayelsa. PDP retorted, “This visit to Jonathan by the APC governors is a direct acceptance of the successes recorded by our party in building a strong nation with a virile economy that was rated as one of the fastest-growing economies of the world,” the statement read.
He also spoke about the issue of insecurity in the country and called for support for the Federal Government and the security agencies to overcome the challenges.
The former president noted that Nigeria was not the only country affected by insecurity, adding that he had his challenges to deal with while in office.
He also spoke about the political crisis in Mali, saying the situation has been brought under control following the intervention of ECOWAS.
