A group, Nigerian Young Professionals in Diaspora on Thursday told former President Goodluck Jonathan to declare for 2023 presidency without delay.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the group gave Jonathan a one-week ultimatum. It vowed to sue the former Nigerian leader if he fails to heed their call.

The convener of the group, Oladipo Akande in a press release made available to this newspaper said Jonathan has the capability to turn the tide of hardship in Nigeria.

“President Jonathan has cemented himself as a true diplomat and African statesman through his various interventions in conflicts and election monitoring across the African Continent. This experience will be invaluable in bringing peace and political stability in the Country when he becomes President,” Akande said.

“As the first Nigerian President with a PhD, Dr. Jonathan was able to attract and appoint World acclaimed intellectuals like current ADB President Akinwunmi Adesina, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation among others who brought a lot of value to Governance. Given the opportunity to preside over the affairs of the Country again, we are confident that he will do even better as the Country needs her finest minds now more than eve.”
