Emerging report indicates that a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Niger State, Jonathan Vatsa, has on Thursday, vowed to dump the ruling party and quit politics completely, if former President Goodluck Jonathan is allowed to contest for the 2023 Presidency under the APC.
Vatsa, a former Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, in Niger State, said exactly: ”I pray it is a mere rumour or fake news, but if former President Goodluck Jonathan accepts to contest the forthcoming election and under APC, then I will agree with a former Governor, who once said there is no morality in politics. I will not only leave the party, I will quit politics and go back to the farm.
“We told Nigerians in 2015, that Jonathan was a devil, Jonathan was corrupt, Jonathan was incompetent to address Insecurity in the country, Jonathan is from a minority tribe, and all manner of propaganda, seven years after, he is now an angel”
“The ruling APC lied to Nigerians in 2015, in a desperate move to get the power at all means, including the threat of violence which has today divided the country along ethnic and religious lines. This country has never been so divided as it is today.
“Since 2015, we have continued to blame Jonathan and PDP for our inability to perform and fix the country, and now we want to give the government back to the same man we accused of destroying this country, this is a huge joke, and amounts to taking Nigerians for granted.
”Nigerians cannot sincerely vote for APC again, no matter who is the Candidate, or is it those that their relations are with kidnappers that will vote you, or those that their loved ones have been killed by kidnappers?
“The desperation at which we want to bring Jonathan back, is a confirmation that there was nothing wrong with the Jonathan government, rather some people wanted power at all cost, even when they know that they are not competent and capable.”
