One of President Muhammadu Buhari’s aides, Bashir Ahmaad, has confirmed that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has defecter to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He made the confirmation in a post on his Twitter page on Thursday in response to those who doubted his earlier prediction that the former President will defect to the ruling party.
His tweet reads: “When I shared the news of former President Jonathan joining our party, his uninformed supporters insulted me saying it can never happen even in the wildest dream.
“They should know that we know something they don’t know and not everything is planned and executed on social media.”
In a report by Daily Trust newspaper, it was reported that the former President had paid a visit to the National Chairman of the APC and former Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Adamu, at his residence in Abuja, same day it was reported that the N100 million nomination and expression of interest form of the ruling party was reported bought for the ex- President Jonathan by a northern group.
He has since denied knowledge of the form.
Daily Trust said the former President did visit Adamu’s residence to seek assurance of the APC before he could decamp from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the ruling party.
While the APC Chairman was said to have welcomed the former President to the ruling party, he was said not t o have given absolute assurance that the party’s presidential ticket will be easy for him to get if he joins the race for it.
