The All Progressives Congress (APC) Elders Advisory Council in Oyo State has disclosed why former President, Goodluck Jonathan can’t be president on the platform of the ruling party.
Chairman of APC Elders Council in the state, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala, explained that the party has people already lined up to become president.
In a chat on Agidigbo 88.5 FM in Ibadan, Alao-Akala said the former president was free to join the APC but should dismiss the notion of becoming the party’s presidential candidate in 2023.
“I am not saying Jonathan can’t join APC but he can’t be president under APC in 2023.
“I’m not saying Jonathan can’t be president but it can never be under APC in 2023 because some people are on the queue already,” he said.
This comes amid swirling rumours that Jonathan would dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the ruling APC.
Jonathan has however so far remained silent over the rumours making the rounds.
