Written by News Room on April 22, 2022
Protesters on Friday stormed the private office of former President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja with a call to declare his interest to contest the presidential election next year.
The protesters comprising men, women, and youths believe the former President is the man for the job and want him to join the race to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when he completes his second term in office in May 2020.
The group lamented that the people were deceived by those who promised to secure the nation, improve its economy, and fight corruption, among others in 2015, they, however, sought forgiveness from Jonathan whose administration they said was better compared with what the country presently has.
Former President Jonathan, in his response, was reported to have affirmed that he has yet to declare his interest to join the race.
Leader of Youth Compatriots of Nigeria, Mr Mayor Samuel, while speaking with newsmen at the event, said youths were prepared to support Jonathan to ensure that he emerged the country’s next president in 2023. The solidarity march by the protesters comes a day after another group – The Nigerian Young Professionals in Diaspora (NYPD) threatened to sue the former President.
