It is no longer speculation as being insinuated for almost a month as former President Goodluck Jonathan has finally joined the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential race.
A group of supporters of Fulani extraction and Almajiris led by Ibrahim Abdullahi picked the expression of interest and nomination forms for the former President around 6:30 pm.
Jonathan, who spoke on his entrance into the race when some women and youths stormed his office to persuade him to contest the 2023 presidential election some weeks ago, had said the process of joining was in progress.
With his entrance, APC presidential aspirants has swelled to 26.
It is not clear if his declaration will lead to legal battle since it is believed that he is not qualified to run for president.
However, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Mike Ozekhome, said recently that the constitution allows the former president to contest for the country’s highest office.
