The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that former President, Goodluck Jonathan has not resigned his membership in the party.
The party disclosed this amid speculations that Jonathan has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress to contest the 2023 presidency after a group identified as Fulani Group procured the APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms for Jonathan.
But Jonathan’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, dismissed the move by the group saying the ex-president was not aware of the purchase of the forms.
Recall that reports claimed the ex-president registered with the ruling party in his ward in Otuoke, Bayelsa state.
Reacting to this, Debo Ologunagba, the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party while featuring on the Channels Television program on Friday, May 13, 2022, said he is not aware of Jonathan’s resignation from the party.
He said, “As far as today, I am not aware of his resignation from the membership of the party [PDP]”.
“I would assume it is safe to say that he is a member of the party, if events follow thereafter, we can speak to that.
“Membership of the party is personal. Membership of the party is at the ward level.”
