Former President Goodluck Jonathan said reports on him contesting the presidential election in 2023 were mere speculations.
He spoke during a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State on his father’s death.
Speaking at the State Government House, Asaba, he said his major priority now is to continue to serve God, humanity, and Africa to the best of his ability.
He said, “On the rumour of my interest in 2023 presidential election, it is mere speculation. I will continue to serve God, humanity, Africa and the world to the best of his ability and with all sense of commitment and sincerity.”
Speaking on the security state of the nation, Jonathan implored the governors and other stakeholders in the country to work together with President Muhammadu Buhari.
“I believe that with the commitment of the governors and the Federal Government, we will be able to address the issue of insecurity in the country. I believe that the President himself is not sleeping and that the governors are not sleeping as well over the insecurity challenge in the country.
“As long as the governors, the President and all the security agencies can work together, Nigeria will be able to cross over this very ugly phase of societal evolution,” he said.
