Former president Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday has said that he has no reason to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), or retire from politics for now.
Jonathan made this known through a statement by his Media Adviser, Mr Ikechukwu Eze, in reaction to a report by an online publication, which claimed that the ex-president had resigned from PDP and quit politics.
According to the former president, there is no iota of truth in such report, saying that it was a “calculated attempt to rubbish the elder statesman”.
The statement reads: “The PDP gave Jonathan the platform to serve as Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President and eventually President of Nigeria. Jonathan has no reason at this time to resign his membership of the platform.
“Obviously, this is a fabrication borne out of mischief as the publishers of the fake story claimed that the former President made the statement while being interviewed by the Nigeria News Agency(NNA).
“There is absolutely no way the former President could have spoken to a non-existent news agency, as none in the country goes by that name,” NAN quoted him as saying.
