I have not resigned from PDP ― Jonathan




FORMER President Goodluck

Jonathan has denied that he has

resigned from the main

opposition, the Peoples

Democratic Party (PDP).

According to a statement in

Abuja on Sunday by Ikechukwu

Eze, Media Adviser to the former

president, a ‘fake story’ had

claimed that Jonathan had

dumped the party on whose

platform he rose to the post of

the President of Nigeria.

The statement said the story was

borne out of mischief as the

former President never spoke to

any news outlet on the subject



The statement added: “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 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.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Dr

Jonathan has no reason at this

time to resign his membership of

PDP, the party under which

platform he became Deputy

Governor, Governor, Vice

President and President.

“Those who derive pleasure in

spreading fake information had

better occupy themselves with

more productive endeavours

that are obviously more relevant

to nation-building.”
