2023: “if he doesn’t accept our form, we won’t let him out of Nigeria” – Fulani group vows to force Jonathan to contest for presidential election
The Fulani group who bought the Presidential nomination and expression of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) worth N100million for Goodluck Jonathan, has insisted he won’t be allowed to leave Nigeria until he accepts the forms from its members.
On Monday, the former president insisted that the groups bought the forms without his consent.
The Presidential nomination and expression of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) forms was bought for him by the Fulani supporters’ group on Monday, continuing the trend of aspirants using proxies to purchase the forms.
According to a statement by Jonathan’s spokesperson, he was said to be unaware “of this bid and did not authorise it.”
According to PUNCH, Usman Mohammed, Secretary of the Fulani Group, said the form was meant to be a surprise gift to the ECOWAS special envoy.
He noted that if the jonathan didn’t accept the nomination form as he threatened, they would be left with no option than to force him to accept it.
“I believe you are aware of how we blocked his office in the FCT during our rallies in Kano, Suleja, Minna, and Abuja, and forced him to come out to address journalists. It is the same approach.
“If he doesn’t accept our form, we won’t let him out of Nigeria,” he said.
