SocialMediaTrends: Reaction trails purchased APC forms for Jonathan, ASUU’s extended strike



In a shocking twist of fate, social media has been thrown into frenzy as former President under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) might be running for President in 2023 under the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

Ripples Nigeria gathered that a ‘Fulani group’ had on Monday purchased the N100 million nomination and expression of interest forms for the ex-president to run.

Jonathan had served as the deputy governor of Bayelsa state and becoming the governor on the platform of the PDP, before going on to become Vice President and President between 2007 and 2015.

While the presidential forms have been bought, Nigerians are wondering how Jonathan could be sold an interest form by a party he probably isn’t a member of.
