Babajide Otitoju Reacts After Some APC Govs Reportedly "Lure GEJ To Run For 2023 Presidential Race"

Politicians in Nigeria have begun voicing their concerns over reports that the ruling APC is seeking the nomination of former President Goodluck Jonathan to run for the presidency under the party's banner in the 2023 general election.
Some governeors from the north are said to be pushing for that, arguing that because of the former president's one-term promise, power will return to the north.
But political analysts say this is a sign of a lack of trust among politicians, especially members of the ruling APC.
According to experts, some leading parties prefer the former president to be Buhari's successor, as he will not run against them, and would prefer to run on someone from a different constituency, or from the south-west or southeast of the country, and then not more than one term, and after that the power returned to the northerners considering that it had made the same promise in the past.

Popular Nigerian Journalist who is experienced with the all the trending issues in the country, Babajide Otitoju has come out to react about the report.
Babajide on Tuesday morning revealed the move by the APC governors when he shared on his Facebook wall the report by BBC Hausa.

He said in a Facebook post that. "BBC Hausa Service is reporting that some APC governors want the party to make GEJ the party's

flagbearer in the 2023 presidential election. Really!" he said.
