Sequel 2 hours’ meeting with members and leaders of the Fulani community that procured the N100 million presidential nomination forms on his behalf, former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, is now considering running on the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former president is reported to have met with the Fulani pastoralists at Abuja between 11 p.m on Monday 09May22 and 1 am Tuesday 10May22 with the aim of sorting out issues regarding their purchase of the nomination forms without his consent, which made him to earlier reject the offer.
It was learned that at the meeting, the leader of the team that procured the form, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, apologized to the former president and pleaded with him to pardon their indiscretion and accept the offer to run.
They reportedly told Jonathan that they bought the form as a demonstration of appreciation for the N60b investments he made for the Almajiris during his tenure in the form of schools and investment opportunities.
After listening to the Fulani community, Jonathan accepted their plea to consider running for the APC ticket as suggested by them, and promised to give them feedback as soon as possible but did not give a specific date.
