Senator representing Bauchi North District, Adamu Muhammad Bulkachuwa has said former President Goodluck Jonathan should feel insulted with rumor of him running to be President in 2023.
Bulkachuwa in an interview on Arise TV, said rumour of Goodluck Jonathan contesting the election under the All Progressives Congress is the “most bizarre thing he has heard”.
The lawmaker wondered why Jonathan would abandon a party that groomed him “from the chairman of a local government to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and to the position of the president”.
“I have to laugh because anybody that has been spreading this wild rumour about Goodluck Jonathan contesting the election under APC, I think this is the most bizarre thing I have ever heard. And if I were his relative or if I were him (Goodluck Jonathan), I would feel insulted.
“How could I have served as president under a party that groomed me from the chairman of a local government to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and to the position of the president, then abandon that party for the sake of what?
“What has he forgotten in the Villa that he wants to go back and take? I would feel insulted about all that rumour. In any case, I am very happy that this thing has turned out to be absolutely baseless. So, we should put it aside and make it a non-issue.”
