The former President Goodluck Jonathan has described as false the report that he had quit the PDP as allegedly reported by what he called an “unknown website”.
In a statement on Sunday by Ikechukwu Eze, his media adviser, the former president said the publication was a fabrication borne out of the mischief of the publisher, noting that there was no way he could have quit the main opposition party.
The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a fake story published by an unknown website, alleging that former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has quit the Peoples Democratic Party.
“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 Goodluck has no reason at this time to resign his membership of PDP, the party on 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.
