Jonathan’s men endorse Tinubu, insist on Southern presidency

Supporters and kinsmen of former President Goodluck Jonathan have endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the 2023 election.

Jonathan’s supporters, who operate under the aegis of Citizens Network For Peace and Development in Nigeria CNPDN, said the decision to endorse Tinubu is based on their commitment to having a Nigerian president of Southern extraction.

The CNPDN members, who earlier rooted to have Jonathan on the ballot, said since he declined to join the race, the right thing to do is to support Tinubu, who they said, has the structures and capacity to win the elections.

The National Secretary of the Coalition, Chief Francis Okereke Wainwei, who, like Jonathan, hails from Bayelsa State, said as patriotic citizens, they could not sit back and not participate in the electoral process of the country.

Wainwei stated this at a media parley at the weekend in Abuja.

He said, “as patriotic citizens under the auspices of the Citizens Network For Peace and Development in Nigeria, we took it up as a burning need for us to be actively involved in the process leading to the election of Nigeria’s next president, who shall be taking over from President Muhammadu Buhari next year.”
