2023: Jonathan’s Candidacy Gets Traction In International Community
By Centus Nweze
Key political stakeholders and influential international personalities may have begun groundworks towards securing a four year period of ‘loose restructuring and reforms’ for the country under former President Goodluck Jonathan, elombah.com exclusively scooped this weekend.
The online newspaper was reliably informed by top diplomatic sources that the Nigerian presidency is greatly amenable to a move that will have a single term presidency shifted to the South after eight years in the North after President Mohammdu Buhari.
“Reports reaching us shows that influential voices in the international community worry over the hitup in the political system. The global community is in support of loose rearrangement of the Nigerian system to accommodate all interests,” explained a diplomat to the online newspaper.
The source further explained that the ideal candidate should have demonstrated appreciable neutrality in Nigerian politics, is well respected in the international community and can do just a single term after midwifing better political reforms.
There has been talks of serious political shuttle diplomacy going on between leading players in both the People’ Democratic Party, PDP, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
The newspaper has also gathered a no less massively influential international stakeholder like the Buckingham Palace (administrative headquarters of the British Monarch) has been advising President Buhari on the need to listen to all shades of opinion in the country.
“This is the crux of Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury’s visist to see the president earlier in the year,” added our source.
