The opposition party disclosed this amid speculations that Jonathan has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress to contest the 2023 presidency.⁣ The speculation about the former president joining the party that kicked him out of power in 2015 was given some sort of credence during the week when a group identified as Fulani Group procured the APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms for Jonathan.⁣

⁣But Jonathan’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, dismissed the move by the group saying the ex-president was not aware of the purchase of the forms.⁣ Subsequently, a report by NAN suggested that the former president had dumped the PDP and registered with the ruling party in his ward in Otuoke, Bayelsa state.⁣ Reacting to this, Debo Ologunagba, the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party said he is not aware of Jonathan’s resignation from the party.⁣

He said, “As far as today, I am not aware of his resignation from the membership of the party [PDP]”.⁣ “I would assume it is safe to say that he is a member of the party, if events follow thereafter, we can speak to that.⁣ “Membership of the party is personal. Membership of the party is at the ward level.⁣ “I can’t speak for him. I don’t speak for the former president.”⁣ The Bayelsa State chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dennis Otiotio, had also dismissed reports that the former President had joined the party in the state.⁣ Otiotio said Jonathan would only join the APC if the National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu, formally grants him a waiver.⁣
