2019: ‘People Come To Me Every Day Saying They Want Me Back’ – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has spoked on th possiblitity of him contesting for President in 2019.
He said this in an interview with Ovation Magazine owner, Dele Momodu who paid him a visit at his Abuja office.
When asked if he’ll contest in 2019, he said, “contest again? No. 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”.
What if your party decides to invite you again?’ he was asked, “are you not aware that our Party has zoned the Presidency to the North, and the Chairmanship to the South?. Even Fayose that has declared his interest may face big challenges because of the decision of our party” he said.
“So there is no way you can ever contest again?”, he answered “I’m not God but I sincerely doubt the possibility.”
