Former President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed why he cannot declare for the 2023 presidency.
Goodluck, who was greeted by a mammoth crowd of supporters, who called on him to declare for the 2023 presidential election, said the political process was ongoing, and asked his supporters to watch out.
Spokesman for the supporters, Mayor Samuel, who is also the convener of the Youth Compatriots said, “We were deceived and brainwashed by those who claimed they could do it in 2015.
“Now, we know better, under Jonathan the minimum wage could buy one or two bags of rice. What do we have today? We are begging President Jonathan to forgive us, we have realized our mistakes, we want him back to complete what he started.
Responding, the former President charged youths to take advantage of the Not Too Young To Run Act to participate actively in the electoral process.
On the call to declare for the 2023 presidency, he said;
“I am aware that you are here to ask me to declare. I cannot declare because some process are still ongoing.”
“Yes you are calling me to come and declare for the next election, I cannot tell I’m declaring. The political process is ongoing just watch out. The key role you must play is that Nigeria must get somebody that will carry young people along.”
