BREAKING: Jonathan makes U-turn on APC ticket

After two hours of meeting with Fulani leaders and members who obtained the N100 million presidential nomination forms for him, former President Goodluck Jonathan is considering running on the ticket of the All Progressives Congress, Vanguard learned authoritatively last night.

The former president reportedly met with Fulani pastoralists between 11 p.m. on Monday and 1 a.m. on Tuesday to resolve issues concerning their purchase of presidential nomination forms without his consent, a development that prompted him to reject the offer and condemn those involved in the action.

"We wish to state categorically that Dr. Jonathan was not aware of this bid and did not authorise it," Jonathan said in a statement issued by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze.

However, it was learned that during the meeting with the Fulani community in Abuja, the leader of the team that procured the form for him, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, apologised to the former president and begged him to forgive them and accept the offer to run.

According to reports, the pastoralists purchased the form for Jonathan as a token of their gratitude for the N60 billion in investments he made for the Almajiris during his tenure in the form of schools and investment opportunities.

According to a source at the meeting, after listening to the Fulani community, Jonathan reluctantly accepted their plea to consider running for the APC ticket as suggested by them and promised to provide feedback as soon as possible, but no specific date was given.
