Wrong Advice? “People Are Forcing Me to Contest in 2019” Goodluck Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that people have been asking him to contest the 2019 election.

In an interview with Dele Momodu, celebrity journalist, the immediate past president said he is moved to tears seeing people shouting “GEJ, we want you back”.

 But Jonathan, who ruled out the possibility of returning to office, said reflections on his achievements and mistakes make him sober.

“I’m not God but I sincerely doubt the possibility,” Jonathan was quoted to have said in response to a question on the next election.

“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.”
