“5. 2023: Nabena Goes Spiritual, Reveals What He Will Do To Jonathan If He Joins APC”

Yekini Nabena, a former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has warned former President Goodluck Jonathan against running for the party’s presidential nomination in the 2023 presidential election.

The former APC spokesperson went on to say that if Jonathan were to win the APC nomination by some stroke of good fortune, he would never support the former President’s candidacy.

The only condition Nabena stipulated for welcoming Jonathan to the APC is that he join and only serve as a leader, rather than contesting for the position of president.

He stated that Jonathan had every opportunity to accomplish everything he desired as President of Nigeria in the past and that there was no point in attempting to do so again.

The former APC spokesperson, on the other hand, stated that he will not believe the rumours and speculations that the Bayelsa politician is planning to join the ruling party until Jonathan himself declares his intention to join the party.

Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, is a Yoruba nationalist activist who is currently imprisoned. The town has been adopted by Sunday Adeyemo.

In a press conference, Rotimi Olumo, the coordinator of the OPC in Oyo State, described Gumi’s visit to Igboho as an insult to the entire Yoruba nation.

According to him, Gumi had crossed the line, and he issued a warning to the cleric, instructing him to stay away from all areas of the South-Western region of Yoruba land.

Rather than making a mockery of the people of the South West, he claims, Gumi’s visit poses a significant security threat to the entire Yoruba nation because they see no reason or interest for it to take place.
