Jonathan Rattles APC Presidential Primary

Former President Goodluck Jonathan is increasingly emerging a favourite for the powerful presidential caucus within the All Progressives Congress.

Emerging reports indicated that the former President is on the verge of adoption as presidential candidate , a prospect that is creating unease within the ruling party.

In Abuja, the nation’s capital, the likelihood of Jonathan flying APC flag is rattling not just the APC camp but also the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

While the likes of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amaechi and Vice President Osinbajo are banking on direct contest, the strong rumour of a likely consensus motion endorsing Jonathan is reported to be poisoning the political space.

As at the time of filling this report , the political tension in the capital is palpable as the various presidential camps appear to be opposed to any backdoor adoption of the former President as the APC candidate.

This has set the stage for what insiders described as a likely explosive convention especially one in which President Muhammadu Buhari will not be in attendance.
