Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has urged former President Goodluck Jonathan not to defect to the All Progressives Congress(APC).
There have been speculations that the ruling APC is wooing the former president in order to hand the party’s presidential ticket to him in 2023.
Speaking on the speculation in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, Tambuwal said Jonathan should not even contemplate it, otherwise his situation will be like that of Adams Oshiomhole and Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
He said: “Rumour says that. Even myself, there was a rumour that I was going back to the APC but it remains a rumour. I have had cause to do an interview with VON Hausa where similar question was asked by the reporter on the possibility of President Jonathan going to the APC. We advise that he should not even contemplate it. Otherwise, how are they going to market him? His situation will be like that of my senior brother, Adams Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu.
“You know that in Edo, during the last governorship election, it was more of what Adams himself had said about his own candidate, Ize-Iyamu, which became campaign issues. People will just exhume what President Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed and rest of APC stalwarts had said about Jonathan. That, I can guarantee, is what we in PDP will do. So, I advise President Jonathan, if he has any aspiration, he should possibly consider it in the PDP rather than leaving to join the APC.”
