BREAKING: Goodluck Jonathan Releases Statement On Decamping From PDP, Sets The Record Very Straight

Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has said that he has no reason to quit the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, or retire from politics for now.

He made the statement on Sunday, through his Media Adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, in reaction to a report by an online publication, which claimed that the ex-President had resigned from the PDP, and quit politics.

Eze’s statement described the news as fake, saying that, it was a “calculated attempt to rubbish the Elder Statesman”.

“The PDP gave Jonathan the platform to serve as Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President, and eventually President of Nigeria. Jonathan
has no reason at this time to resign his membership of the platform.

“Those who derive pleasure in spreading fake information, had better occupy themselves with more productive endeavours, that are obviously more relevant to nation building.

“Obviously, this is a fabrication borne out of mischief, as the Publishers of the fake story claimed that the former President made the statement while being interviewed by the Nigeria News Agency, NNA.

“There is absolutely no way the former President could have spoken to a non-existent news Agency, as none in the country goes by that name”, the statement read.
