A poster has emerged online further fueling speculations that former President Goodluck Jonathan is interested in contesting the 2023 presidency.
The poster sighted by our correspondent was tagged “GEJ Is Coming Back” and according to details on it, the poster is sponsored by a group identified as the National Agenda For Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
The campaign poster has a picture of Jonathan and signs off with a slogan that says “coalition for a better Nigeria 2023.”

Despite his refusal to publicly declare or reject his 2023 presidential ambition, rumours have been rife that Jonathan will contest the 2023 presidency.
It was gathered that shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja last Thursday, Jonathan held a meeting with his coordinators on December 27, 2021, at Aridolf Hotels and Spars in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
According to The Nation, two northern All Progressives Congress (APC) governors are reportedly behind plots for Jonathan to return to power which will also enable the North to reclaim Aso Rock after four years.
A source said the governors of two Northwest states are championing the plot for a Jonathan presidency and they want one of their own to run as his Vice President.
He added that the scheme was part of the reasons a minister from the Southsouth spoke recently against the then administration of Jonathan.
Similarly, a report monitored on Sahara Reporters has it that President Buhari has reportedly shunned his vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, and the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in favour of Jonathan for the number one seat in the country.
The news platform claimed that the President has communicated his plan for Jonathan to be his successor in 2023 and has started making moves to ensure that the plan comes to reality.
