Deji Adeyanju has urged the APC to present ex-President Goodluck Jonathan as its presidential candidate in 2023.
Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju has called on the ruling All Progressives Congress to field ex-President Goodluck Jonathan as its presidential condidate in 2023.
He made the call on Friday.
According to him, Jonathan would be the best presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress in 2023, as it will be difficult to find a presidential candidate like the former president.
He noted that under Jonathan’s administration, no critics or activist was jailed.
Adeyanju added that the former president’s government did not manipulate election for his party while in power.
He wrote: “GEJ will be the best candidate APC can present in 2023. It’s difficult to find leaders like GEJ on the continent, a complete democrat. Under GEJ, no critic or activist was jailed. Elections will be free and fair. PDP lost every election under GEJ except Ekiti where Fayose won with stomach infrastructure.
“Many of the people that criticized GEJ are now certified tyrants who will never allow freedom of speech or credible polls. Just watch how APC will write results in Anambra and declare their unpopular candidate winner.
“African leaders and even many of the critics are generally tyrants, they can’t tolerate criticism. To have a complete democrat is an advantage. GEJ that I know is not desperate for anything including power.”
Recall that Jonathan is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
This is as rumour over the months have suggested that he might be dumping the party for the All Progressives Congress ahead of the 2023 election.
However, Jonathan has continued to deny the rumour.
