By Francis Harry

 Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan became the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the year 2010, as he succeeded the ex-President Musa Yar'Adua who died on the 12th of may, 2010.

After completion of the tenure,  Goodluck Jonathan contested for the office of President under the Peoples Democratic Party in 2011 and won, extending his stay in the office of President by another fours years.

After completing his four years, Goodluck Jonathan contested for the office of President again in 2015 on the platform of PDP but lost and conceded defeat to President Mohammadu Buhari of APC.

It was the first time an incumbent President would lose re-election and conceded defeat in the history of Nigeria.

Following the alleged defection of the former President, Goodluck Jonathan from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC), rumours have been spreading around that the ex-President will be contesting for the office of President in 2023.

Speculations that Goodluck Jonathan may take over power from President Mohammadu Buhari, may not end soon, as the ex-President could not give a definite position on his rumoured ambition.

Dr. Goodluck Jonathan had a brief conversation with reporters on Friday 4th of December, 2020 after attending an event organised by the Commonwealth Community Choir in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

When asked if he would be joining the presidential race in the 2023, general election, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan said “It is too early to talk about that ”.

The ex-President also spoke about the insecurity in the country and called for support for the federal government and security agencies to overcome the challenges, stressing that he faced similarly challenge during his time.
