I’m not contesting 2019 presidential election – Jonathan


FORMER president Goodluck Jonathan has denied a report that he has intentions to contest the 2019 presi­dential election.

The report, which was published by an online me­dium, stated that Jonathan declared interest to run for presidency in 2019 in Bayelsa yesterday.

It was reported that Jonathan was inundated with calls from Nigerians “to recontest and salvage the economy from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, Jonathan’s media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, has denied the former president is considering taking another shot at the presidency.

Eze said the former president never made any declaration on 2019 election, either in May or this month.

Jonathan contested the 2015 presidemtial elec­tion on the platform of the peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC.

Before the final count at the International Confer­ence Centre (ICC) in Abuja, Jonathan called Buhari to congratilate him on his victory.
