“You dey run abi You no dey run? Don’t go through the corners ” – Nigerians react to rumour of former President Jonathan contesting in 2023 Elections after he reveals he is in Senegal for ECOWAS dialogue

Days after distancing himself from a group which bought the 2023 Presidential Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for him – former Nigerian President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan had shared a picture of him in Dakar, Senegal, where he is attending a dialogue of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS.

President Jonathan, who was rumoured to have decamped from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had been in the corridor of power with the APC’s President Muhammdu Buhari-led federal administration (for years), serving in the capacity of mediators to troubled African states, especially, within the ECOWAS bloc.

Revealing his purpose of in Senegal via his official social media pages, the former president wrote “My team and I in Dakar, Senegal, to attend a Dialogue on Sustaining Democratic Principles in the ECOWAS sub-region organised by the West African Elders Forum (WAEF).

“We thank officials of the Senegalese Government and staff of the Nigerian Embassy for the warm reception and look forward to a fulfilling outing”.

However, Nigerians would want the ex-President to address a million dollar question that is bothering on his interest in the Presidential position in the coming 2023 General Elections.

Some Nigerians, who commented on the ex-President’s post on social media, have the following to say

Nnaemeka Nwoba Elibe, with a high sense of expectancy, wrote “Speak up for once your excellency. Address the masses personally and clear the air. The suspense is much and your silence might mean it’s true. Be a man and come open sir”.

Ufele Chris Ifechukwu, with a great sense of humour, asked You dey run abi You no dey run?

“Don’t go through the corners .

Hrh Brume, pleading with the ex-President, affirmed “Sir, I take God beg you, don’t accept that offer of running for the presidential seat they’re bringing to your table, it’s a trap.

“You’re a man of good reputation, recognized globally…

“Keep being you sir, God bless you!”
