Nigerians warn ex-President Jonathan against joining APC
If President Goodluck Jonathan listens to public opinion and reads the feeds from his Facebook, he would stand far from the rumoured plan to join the APC.
On Thursday, Jonathan who has a following of 2.3 million people on his confirmed Facebook account made a harvest of warnings and pleas to him never to join the APC as popularly trending.
According to Ikeroyal Emewu, Jonathan who was President between 2010 and 2015 posted two photos of himself and some African leaders.
He captioned it as “in Ghana with the ECOWAS mediation team for the extraordinary session of the authority of the Heads of Governments called to review recent political developments in the sub-region (sic).”
He added, “I am pleased that West African leaders have continued to work for peace and progress in ECOWAS.”
Within three hours of this post, it had garnered 787 comments, and looking through them, over 560 of the posts warned and advised him against joining the APC.
The same post had also attracted over 6,500 likes and 201 shares but quite conspicuous are the warnings and expressions of love for the former president.
The comments made him understand that he accepting the offer to join the APC and run for the presidency in 2023 would be a wrong decision that will attract him the equal amount of hatred as the admiration he enjoys with the people today.
Many of the fans reminded him that there is no greater gain and honour he would get as president again that would compare with the global acclaim of today, reminding him that they suspect the APC deliberately plans to lure him over and rubbish his reputation.
One of the comments said: “Your Excellency, maintain this global lofty and cherished status of yours. Stay far from the APC. Don’t join them.
“There is no president you will be again that will compare with your current international reputation and standing. Don’t yield to this temptation targeted to rubbish you.
“But if you eventually do, the volume of love and acclaim you receive would turn to hate. We will distance you and they will totally mess up your image.”
Another follower, Precious Tristan Ndimele said: “You are doing a good work, but avoid APC. “
