Former president Goodluck Jonathan has denied reports that he has resigned as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement released by his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, the former president said that a ‘fake story’ had claimed that he had dumped the party on whose platform he rose to the post of the President of Nigeria.
He stressed that the story was borne out of mischief as the former President never spoke to any news outlet on the subject matter.
The statement reads;
“Obviously, this is a fabrication borne out of mischief as the publishers of the fake story claimed that the former President made the statement while being interviewed by Nigeria News Agency, (NNA).
There is absolutely no way the former President could have spoken to a non-existent news agency, as none in the country goes by that name.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Dr Jonathan has no reason at this time to resign his membership of PDP, the party under which platform he became Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President and President.
Those who derive pleasure in spreading fake information had better occupy themselves with more productive endeavours that are obviously more relevant to nation-building.”
