Former President Goodluck Jonathan has refused to resign from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This is according to Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition party, who stated this during an interview.
“As far as today, I am not aware of his resignation from the membership of the party [PDP]” he said on Friday amid speculations that the former Nigerian leader is joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) to vie for the presidential seat in next year’s poll.
“I would assume it is safe to say that he is a member of the party,” the PDP spokesman maintained. “If events follow thereafter, we can speak to that.”
According to him, the party would not respond to rumours about Jonathan’s defection, saying there are no facts to prove such.
Ologunagba said questions about the former president’s defection speculations should be channeled to him and his ward in Bayelsa State.
“Membership of the party is personal. Membership of the party is at the ward level,” he added.
“I can’t speak for him. I don’t speak for the former President,” the PDP chieftain stressed.
