Very vocal social media activist and former presidential aide Reno Omokiri, has completely berated the idea or possibility of a joint ticket between Former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, come the 2023 presidential election.
This was in a reaction to some speculations that former President Goodluck Jonathan may be running for President alongside El-Rufai as his running mate under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, the APC.
Reno who spoke while in a in interview session on a Punch Online program, the Roundtable, hinted that his mentor and former boss would not compromise his integrity, saying that jumping political parties has never been the nature of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
It will be recalled that some political leaders have reportedly been trying to lure the former president to the ruling All Progressives Congress and eventually field him for presidency in 2023.
They are trying to put that story out there to put pressure as to promote Nasir El-Rufai as a presidential candidate.
I spoke to former President Jonathan just before this interview. That story is a lie, quote me. Nasir El-Rufai will be the last person if former President Jonathan is thinking of running, of which he is not even thinking of running.
While reacting to possible defection rumors of the former president, Reno Omokiri has this to say:
The best judge of future behaviour is past behaviours. Former President Jonathan has been in one party all through his life. He is 63 years old and he doesn’t have that kind of history. He doesn’t have that kind of reputation. To the best of my knowledge, former President Jonathan is not leaving the People Democratic Party, He is a very loyal man just like me,
