Senator Adamu Muhammad Bulkachuwa has said former President Goodluck Jonathan should feel insulted for being rumoured to be testing the presidential ticket again.
Naija News reports that Jonathan has been consistently linked with plots to seek reelection in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was gathered that some northern governors and close aides to President Muhammadu Buhari were behind plots to draft Jonathan into the presidential race.
A group had also purchased the 100 million naira Presidential nomination and expression of interest forms of the APC for the ex-president.
But Jonathan did not turn up for the presidential screening of the APC which held on Monday and on Tuesday.
Speaking on Arise TV on Wednesday, Bulkachuwa said it is laughable that there is a rumour about Jonathan aspiring for the APC presidential ticket despite.
The lawmaker said the former President was groomed politically by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) up till he became president.
He said: “I have to laugh because anybody that has been spreading this wild rumour about Goodluck Jonathan contesting the election under APC, I think this is the most bizarre thing I have ever heard. And if I were his relative or if I were him (Goodluck Jonathan), I would feel insulted.
“How could I have served as president under a party that groomed me from the chairman of a local government to deputy governor, governor, vice president, and to the position of the president, then abandon that party for the sake of what?
“What has he forgotten in the Villa that he wants to go back and take? I would feel insulted about all that rumour. In any case, I am very happy that this thing has turned out to be absolutely baseless. So, we should put it aside and make it a non-issue.”
