Update: Why Buhari’s Loyalists Are Considering Jonathan For 2023 Presidential Run

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari are reportedly considering backing former president Goodluck Jonathan for the number seat.

According to the report, Buhari’s close loyalists believe that Jonathan will be the best man for the position if power were to shift to the south.

A top source in Buhari’s camp who didn’t want to be identified said:

“He handed over power peacefully and nursed no bitterness against anyone and therefore will not be a threat to the interest of the north.”

Another reason why these loyalists are considering Jonathan for 2023 presidency is that he will serve just one term of four years, which means the north will be regaining power in a short while.

Jonathan’s candidacy for the 2023 presidential election is beginning to gain momentum.

According to this school of thought, if another southerner emerges, he may likely spend eight years in office before power returns to the north. This Day spoke to multiple sources who believe that having the ex-president succeed Buhari is not a bad idea. Another source privy to the development confirmed that they were considering the option of Jonathan who is a safe bet and very unlikely to cause any problem.

The source stated:

“The former president is a good man, he did well in his first term and we believe he has learnt his lessons and where he failed and is unlikely to repeat those mistakes that cost him the presidency in 2015. He did a lot for the north, so why not?” Read full details HERE
