Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has denied the reports suggesting that he is under pressure to contest the 2023 presidential election.

Some media reports had suggested that the former president is gearing up to contest again in 2023.

However, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, Jonathan said he was not under pressure to contest, rather he is focusing on promoting peace and sustainable democracy across the African continent.

“There was nothing like that. The former President has not made any comments nor spoken to anyone on the coming elections,” he said.

“He is busy concentrating on his foundation, The Goodluck Jonathan Foundation (GJF), and its work of promoting peace, sustainable democracy and youth empowerment in Africa.”

Describing the reports as old and fake, he added: “If you check online, you will discover that a story with similar headline had been published in the past by few shady online sources.”

“The last time this same story circulated online was before the 2019 Presidential elections. It has now come up again,” he said.
“The good thing is that Nigerians already know this to be fake. That is why Nigerian newspapers and serious online news media will not publish such falsehood.”
