“We Did Not Screen Goodluck Jonathan”– Oyegun

Contrary to speculations, former President Goodluck Jonathan was never screened to run for the 2023 presidential election under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The chairman of the seven-man Presidential Screening Committee and former National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie Oyegun disclosed on Friday at the party Secretariat.

Oyegun told newsmen emphatically that his committee never attended to the former president.

“No, no, I can confirm we did not screen him,” Oyegun said.

Jonathan who was rumored to have picked the APC presidential form, was pictured yesterday with one of Buhari’s special adviser, Garba Shehu at the Italian national day event.

The former president was also rumored to be a part of the screening which Mr Oregun has firmly debunked.
