Reactions are trailing the report that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is considering giving a joint ticket to former President Goodluck Jonathan and Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, for the 2023 presidential election.
Media outfit, Sahara Reporters reported that sources within the APC confirmed that Jonathan is being considered as a strong voice in the southern region, while El-Rufai is being packaged to represent northern interests.
See reactions below:
Jonathan / El-rufai 2023 is the funniest conspiracy theory I've heard so far
The media must make money out of people's gullibility sha
Jonathan won't even defect to APC (mark this down)

Drafting of his Excellency @GEJonathan to run with El-rufai will fail like a pack of cards. It's plan to return the north, by extension Fulani to power in 2027, to the exclusion of other nationalities, after 8 yrs of Buhari. It's a plan to use GEJ to achieve this and he knows it.

GEJ pairing with El-Rufai for 2023 presidential election is the funniest shii i have heard today.🤣

Jonathan should enjoy his elderstatesman status in peace. His era is gone. He shouldn't disgrace himself and his legacy by running a second time. He will lose, even in Bayelsa state.
NNPC I El-Rufai I Federal Government

Incase this whole agenda works out, they are just going to let Jonathan do one term in office and then kick him out. Then El-rufai gets to run for presidency and then it is finished for this country called Nigeria.

Are we actually talking about the same El-Rufai & Jonathan? My tired is tired

On the TL I see so many El-Rufai claims 😫 this really can’t be happening when already the age limit for political office holders must fall below 45

If GEJ agrees to run a joint ticket with El-Rufai, then he's not the man we thought him to be. May that ticket loss. Let the opposition win.

I’ll take it as a rumor that GEJ will be paired with El-Rufai in 2023.
If that happens, I’ll start my singing career with Kwam 1 as his back up singer. We’ll clear GEJ’s doubt at one swipe.

Goodluck Jonathan and El-rufai sharing a presidential ticket should tell you everything about Nigerian politicians.
It always a game selfish interest, they don't care about you thought or want
Hope the Igbo can rest now!!!

I repeat: “I’m a Jonathanian & unapologetic about it.” But if the rumor of a possible Goodluck Ebele Jonathan & El-Rufai ticket is true; “I will not only dissociate myself from the Jonathanian movement, I will campaign vigorously against him.
GEJ should enjoy his life, quietly.”
