PDP finally clears air on Jonathan’s rumoured defection to APC.


former Senate president, Bukola Saraki, has expressed optimism in former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan staying in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Saraki gave this assurance on Tuesday, February 16, when some leaders of the party met with the former president amid growing speculations surrounding his projected move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Jonathan has been rumoured to be eyeing the Aso Rock Villa again, with the ruling party looking like a pleasant destination to that dream.

The speculation was further fuelled when some leaders of the APC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state visited him in his home last year.

Dousing the tension over a possible cross-over to the APC, the Kwara former governor in a series of tweets dismissed insinuations that Jonathan was set to leave the PDP.

Saraki also added that the former president has agreed to work as part of the reconciliatory committee for the party.

“It was a very useful meeting. He gave us his views, and we are very happy. He reassured all of us of his commitment to the PDP and he told us that he is still ready to offer his time, experience and resources to strengthen the party and that is very strong and important for us.”
