A former militant warlord, Josiah Oyakonghan, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prepare to hand over power to his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.
Even though he is yet to declare, there is speculation that Jonathan will contest for the Presidency in 2023.
Oyakonghan, also known as Oyimi, said Nigerians can trust only Jonathan to solve their problems, urging Buhari to work towards the emergence of Jonathan as the next president.
According to the former warlord of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, MEND: “We, therefore, use this Easter celebration to urge Nigerians to continue to support Buhari’s administration for him to deliver on the promise of change we are committed to seeing, and also work for Jonathan to return to the Villa.
“We urge Buhari to work for Jonathan’s candidacy who will salvage our country and reawaken a new hope for national cohesion and development.
“President Buhari should therefore support GEJ for president for a new dawn in our country. Virtually every facet of our national life needs urgent attention and GEJ is the answer.”
