Dennis Otiotio, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa State, claimed on Thursday that Goodluck Jonathan is not a party member in the state.
According to Otiotio, Jonathan can only join the ruling party if the party’s national head, Adamu Abdullahi, grants him a waiver.

This was revealed by Otiotio in an interview with Punch on Thursday morning.

Jonathan reportedly joined the APC in his Ogbia ward in Bayelsa, according to the Bayelsa APC Chairman.

“I believe the person you should be putting the question to is the party’s national chairman,” Otiotio remarked. He should be the one to issue a waiver to him (Jonathan).

“He has not yet formally joined our party.” Inquire with the national chairperson about a waiver.”

The former president, on the other hand, was regarded by the APC Chairman as a big fish and an older statesman.

He also remarked that Jonathan joining the ruling party before of the 2023 general election would be fantastic.
