Former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has reacted to rumours that his former boss, Jonathan, is set to defect to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Rumour has been circulating that APC was wooing Jonathan to become its presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections.
Also, on Wednesday, the party said it would welcome Jonathan if he decides to join the party.
APC’s National Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, who stated this during his appearance on Channels Television, said Jonathan, like every other new entrant, would be accorded rights and privileges extended to all members, irrespective of the date they joined.
However, Omokri while fielding questions from his followers on Facebook on the speculations, said God would forbid that such thing would ever happen.
He went on to describe Jonathan as an honourable man who will never consider bringing such shame on the good name he has made.
”God forbid that such a thing should ever happen. However, if it should happen (it will NOT!), is it on Twitter you will see it or CNN?
”This man is more than an honourable man. He is a specimen of a gentleman. He is 63 years old and throughout his life, he has only ever been in one party.
”The best judge of future behaviour is past behaviour. APC celebrates when even a councillor joins their useless party.
”How will a former President, especially one with the juice that HE Jonathan has, join that contraption of backwardness, and you will not see APC dancing naked for joy? God gave us common sense. Let’s use it!” He wrote.
