Jonathan Denies Plotting To Dump PDP, Quit Politics

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has dismissed reports that he is planning to quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or retire from politics.

He made this known in a statement by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze.

Jonathan, who was reacting to a report by an online publication which claimed that the ex-president had resigned from PDP and quit politics, described the news as fake.

“The PDP gave Jonathan the platform to serve as Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President and eventually President of Nigeria. Jonathan has no reason at this time to resign his membership of the platform,” Eze said.

“Those who derive pleasure in spreading fake information had better occupy themselves with more productive endeavours that are obviously more relevant to nation-building.

“Obviously, this is a fabrication borne out of mischief as the publishers of the fake story claimed that the former President made the statement while being interviewed by the Nigeria News Agency(NNA).

“There is absolutely no way the former President could have spoken to a non-existent news agency, as none in the country goes by that name.”
