It was gathered that the former INEC chairman alongside some northern stakeholders might soon join the PDP to intensify moves on mobilization across the North for his presidential ambition.
“Jega is moving to join PDP as presidential candidate. He is well respected and thinks he enjoys goodwill to run for 2023,” a top source told SaharaReporters.
Sources within the PDP said they would wait for Jega to join the party first, before commenting on the feasibility of his presidential ambition for 2023.
Recall that in January, Attahiru Jega had described the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as disappointing.
He stated that many Nigerians were worried about the direction the country was taking, accussing the present administration of being very inept at managing peaceful coexistence in the country.
“Unfortunately, he has disappointed so many people. He still has time to correct things if he has the capacity to do that. But frankly, his government has been very disappointing. Many people wish him well but are worried about the direction the country is taking.
“Governance has been very poor at the federal level and many of the states, that is why we are seeing challenges everywhere; whether it is insurgency, banditry, armed robbery or other things,” he stated.
