The jostling for 2023 presidential election took a new dimension yesterday, as a youth group demanded for the return of former President Goodluck Jonathan to office on May 29, 2023.
It came on the heel of an alleged move by some governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to lure the former leader into the 2023 presidential race.
The youth group, on the platform of “Youth Earnest Demand for Goodluck Jonathan 2023”, in a statement in Abuja yesterday, said they were prepared to fund his electioneering campaign.
The statement jointly signed by its National Chairman, Prince Teddy Omiloli, and the National Director Operations, Comrade Douye Daniel, maintained that the former president is the solution to the country’s problem and has all it takes to turn around for good the nation’s fortunes.
The group said: “We are demanding for Dr. Jonathan to return to power as President, come 2023 and we have resolved to fund Jonathan’s electioneering campaign, should he accept the call to return to power in 2023.
