Former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday said his intention to contest 2023 presidential election was speculative and pledged to continue to serve God, humanity, Africa and the world to the best of his ability and with all sense of commitment and sincerity.

He called for synergy among President Muhammadu Buhari, Governors, Security Chiefs and other stakeholders, insisting that such would de-escalate tension occasioned by the challenge of insecurity in the country.

Jonathan who stated this when he led a delegation of politicians from Bayelsa on a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at Government House, Asaba, over the recent demise of his father, Sir Okorie Okowa, said it was unfortunate that school children and many Nigerians were being kidnapped for ransom by bandits.
