Nigerians chased me out of Aso Rock; I'd never run for presidency again - Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has responded to rumors that have circulated in some circles that he plans to run for president once more.

After serving one term, Goodluck was ousted from office in 2015.

In contrast to rumors, he said that he will not run for president.

This was said in Nathaniel Bivan’s book “My Time As Chaplain In Aso Rock,” which was released to the public on Tuesday.

According to the Daily Post, the book included a thorough narrative of Obioma Onwuzurumba, the Aso Rock Villa Chapel’s chaplain during Jonathan’s administration.

Jonathan indicated that because he was sought outside of Aso Rock, he is not eligible to seek for the nation’s top position once more.

The former president claimed that by opting to submit a nomination form and begin lobbying individuals in addition to running for office again, he would be demeaning himself.

He also discussed how he felt when the Almajirai community and Nomadic Pastoralists paid N100,000,000 for the All Progressives Congress, APC, to buy his presidential nomination form.

The former governor of Bayelsa state claimed he took pleasure in the commotion surrounding the performance since he is unable to run for president again.

Jonathan said; “I was enjoying the drama. At least they are not insulting me. After all, I was pursued out of the office that I was not good enough. So, if now, Nigerians are saying, ‘Oh, this man should come,’ that means they are cleaning me up. So, let me enjoy the drama.

“If you wake up tomorrow and see that I’m President again, that means there may have been circumstances beyond my control. But not to go and pick one form and go and start lobbying people and running for campaigns, be it PDP power or APC broom and moving across Nigeria. I can’t do that again; if I do that, I will diminish myself.”
