The Peoples Democratic Party says former president Goodluck Jonathan has not resigned from the party.
This was made known by the party’s spokesperson, Dapo Ologunagba, on Friday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV programme, Sunrise Daily.
Ologunagba said he considered Jonathan’s defection to the APC as a mere speculation, adding that it will be better if the former president addresses the situation himself.
“As far as today, I am not aware of his resignation from the membership of the party [PDP]” he said.
“I would assume it is safe to say that he is a member of the party, if events follow thereafter, we can speak to that.
“Membership of the party is personal. Membership of the party is at the ward level.
“I can’t speak for him. I don’t speak for the former president.”
Odunews.com reports that the Bayelsa state chapter of the All Progressives Congress confirmed that the former president had joined the ruling party — the platform on which President Muhammadu Buhari defeated him in 2015.
A coalition of northern groups procured the APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms for the former president.
