If there is one man Nigerians have come to love and respect even more than when he was in office as former president of Nigeria, it is Goodluck Jonathan. Ever since he was voted out of power in 2015 by incumbent president Buhari, Nigerians have increasingly come to respect more the man whom they only allowed to rule as president for just one term after he assumed office following the death of his former principal, Umar Musa Yar’Adua.
Nigerians grew impatient with Jonathan’s government and clamoured for a change and that change came in the form of APC with president Buhari as its prime agent. But barely six years after, the story, once again, has changed. Nigerians are disenchanted with the present administration and are looking for another possibly better replacement come 2023. And from all indications, Goodluck Jonathan, who has always been with the PDP, has turned out to be one of the options on the table for Nigerians. And from what we hear, the man is more than excited at the prospect of occupying Aso Rock once more and ruling the country for another four years. And to give life to this speculation, the former president seems poised to cross over to the APC and contest for president come 2023.
This imminent move appears to excite some Nigerians and admirers of the former president. They believe it is a perfect move for him. But the very enigmatic and hugely celebrated prophet of our time, Primate Ayodele Elijah, founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, does not see it that way, going by what the Lord has revealed to him. The very knowledgeable and widely respected man of God told City People in an interview that it will be a very grievous mistake on the part of the former president if he leaves the PDP and move to the APC.
According to the very vocal and fearless prophet, “Anyone who knows former president Goodluck Jonathan should please go and tall him that I am warning him now and I am speaking as an oracle of the Lord, he must not make the mistake of leaving the PDP for APC. But if he wants to soil his good name and image, let him disregard what I’m saying and decamp to the APC. He must not use his own hand to destroy the good reputation he has taken years to build for himself. He must not destroy his political career by himself. God says he should remain where he is so he does not soil his good name.”
