Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has refused to rule himself out of the 2023 presidential contest even as he also declined commenting about insecurity in Nigeria because he considers himself the wrong person to speak on the issue.
He also recalled how he had his challenges to deal with while in office.“I was there before and of course, you know there was a lot of insecurity. So, I am the very wrong person to make comments on the insecurity in the land.”
The former President spoke on the side-lines of the Exclusive Command Performance by the Commonwealth Community Choir in Abuja, on Friday.
“All what we can do is to collectively support the government, encourage the soldiers and other security operatives to do more for our safety,” he added.
He noted that insecurity is a world phenomenon and Nigeria isn’t an exception.
On whether he would contest the presidential race in 2023 he said, “It is too early to talk about that.”
It would be recalled that some APC governors visited the former president in his Abuja residence days back in commemoration of his 63rd birthday and sources revealed that the meeting had political undertone and was not unconnected with the 2023 presidential election.
Even the chairman of Progressive Governors Forum, governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state and his Jigawa state counterpart, Badaru Abubakar visited Jonathan in his country home in Otueke, Bayelsa State.
