Jonathan’s rumour defection to APC, party says we will welcome him and even give him benefits

The All Progressives Congress on Wednesday said it would welcome former President Goodluck Jonathan should he decide to join the party.

It also said he, like every other new entrant, would enjoy the rights and privileges extended to all members of the party irrespective of date of joining.

National Secretary of the party, Senator John Akpanudoedehe said this while answering questions on a Channels Television Political Programme, Politics Today.

In response to a question whether there was any truth in speculations that the party was wooing Jonathan to join and become its Presidential standard bearer for 2023, he said, “I don’t want to speculate.”

He further said, “Everyone is allowed to join the APC, we welcome everyone who wants to join. We are getting stronger in terms of our progressive agenda. I’m hearing that for the first time, if he comes, we will welcome him, that will be great news.

“The last National Executive Committee meeting gave a blanket approval to everyone who wants to join the party and anyone who joins the party has the right to aspire for any office.”

Akpanudoedehe also said the party was expecting more governors from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party to join the APC before December.
