Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday said he cannot declare his intention to run for President in the 2023 presidential election now.

“Yes, you are calling me to come and declare for the next election. I cannot tell you I’m declaring, that the political process is ongoing. Just watch out.”he said
Leaders of the placard-carrying supporters took turns to persuade the former President to return to office in 2023, promising to see to his victory..
Some of the placards read “Goodluck declare now”; “We are sorry, Goodluck don’t abandon us, come back”; “Goodluck please come”; “Goodluck we love you”.
