Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said people have been approaching him to contest in 2019.
Jonathan said this in a recent interview with celebrity journalist, Dele Momodu.
What he said:
- He ruled out the possibility of contesting again.
- Jonathan said he is always moved to tears when he sees huge crowds shouting ‘GEJ we want you back’.
- He said reflections on his achievements and mistakes make him sober.
“I’m not God but I sincerely doubt the possibility,” he said.
“People come to me every day saying they want me back. I’m always moved to tears whenever I go out and see the huge crowds shouting GEJ, we want you, even in the north.
“Instead of getting swollen headed, I actually reflect on my achievements and mistakes and feel humbled and feel very sober…
“I have never been a man of inordinate ambition. I’m a man of very modest means. I hardly travel because of the logistical costs. I’ve played my part and I have moved on.”
