- There is a recent rumour that former president of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be presented as the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the 2023 Presidential Elections
- Sahara Reporters has reported that Dr Goodluck Jonathan will have as his running mate, current governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai
A good number of Nigerians have continued to react to the news report by Sahara Reporters saying it is a political gimmick by one or both of the APC and PDP.
Neither Jonathan nor El-Rufai has come forward to talk about this rumour and debunk Sahara Reporters reportage.

Some fans of the former president are saying if he eventually decamps to the APC, they will stop supporting him.
To some Nigerians, they stated that they do not see the possibility of Jonathan and El-Rufai contesting together as President and Vice president under the APC.
In politics, especially in Nigeria, anything is possible as only the interest of each political actor matters most, not really that of the average citizens.
Do you want a Jonathan and El-Rufai presidency in 2023?
