2023: Nigerians eagerly await Jonathan’s declaration – Fourth Dimension

Former Goodluck Jonathan

It has been revealed from behind the scene in political circles that Nigerians of all creed and power brokers are now eagerly waiting for former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to publicly declare his interest to run for 2023 presidency.

A political interest research group on the aegis of Fourth Dimension Cloud Poll (4-DCP) revealed this in a Second Quarter Special Report (1) signed by the Lead Researcher, Dr. Richard Audi, and released to newsmen Wednesday in Abuja.

The political research group said, “Based on coordinated research undertaken by our field specialists to determine Nigeria’s political direction and Nigerians’ expectations in the 2023 Presidential Election with special reference to behind the scenes happenings among political parties, groups, ethnic and religious groups, and the permutation is obviously in favour of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ).

“The political actors are all waiting. Leaders of ethnic nationalities and religious groups have expressed their willingness to lay aside every difference and work with GEJ because he is a man of peace and he can also be trusted,” the report stated.

Continuing, the report stated: “One thing that is not, however, certain in the behind the scenes engagements among political actors is the final outcome of the entire permutations, and that is, whether Jonathan will eventually succumb to pressure, accept and declare to run.”

There have been reports indicating that the cabal in the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have been putting pressure on Jonathan to publicly accept to succeed Buhari.

It is also believed that the cabal and the former president are trying to iron out grey areas in the conditions given by GEJ.

It is not clear whether Jonathan will accept the call by Nigerians for his second return to power and when he will openly do so.

Many Nigerians have, however, publicly expressed their sincere convictions that the country is in a big political and economic mess; so divided as a result of divisive policies and scars of injustice since 2015 and that it requires a leader and statesman like Jonathan to unite and reconcile the people once again.
