‘Jonathan under pressure to run in 2023’ – Reno Omokri

A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, says ex-president Goodluck Jonathan is under pressure to contest the 2023 election.

Omokri disclosed this during a live chat with celebrity journalist, Dele Momodu on Facebook.

Describing the former president as a peacebuilder, Omokri says some Nigerians had been meeting to convince him to contest the poll.

He said, “I speak to him almost daily; he is not a power monger. He is in Ghana for peacebuilding efforts at the ECOWAS summit. He is very focused on building peace on the African continent. He deserves a Nobel peace prize for what he has done. 

“He is under pressure to recontest. He will win if he contests against anybody. He is the only southern candidate that can win in 2023. I don’t think he is interested in contesting the poll.”

Asked specifically why he won’t consider re-contesting, Omokri said, “I am very close to him; Jonathan is a patriot. He has a consistent history of doing what is suitable for Nigeria, and he will do that.”

Jonathan, who served as the president of Nigeria from 2010 to 2015, lost the May 29, 2015, presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari.
