On Wednesday, a report on social media went viral, claiming that the former president has expressed interest in joining the ruling party and abandoning the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The report fuelled rumours that the former leader may have plans of contesting for the country’s top seat again in 2023.
Jonathan's spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, responded by calling the report "fake news."
“The report is fake news. If he defects, it would be announced through the proper channels,” Eze said.
He insisted that his boss had not moved to the ruling party and had never considered doing so.

The Presidency reminded the Yoruba in a statement issued by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), that IPOB is a designated terrorist organization with 50,000 paramilitary personnel.
While noting that no one would take the Yoruba Nation seriously if they continued to associate with IPOB, the statement stated that with the Yoruba Nation's increasingly violent rallies in Nigeria, their claims of promoting human rights must be ignored.

Babatunde Fashola, minister of works and housing, told state house correspondents after the federal executive council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday that the roads would run through Benue, Bayelsa, Anambra, Imo, and Nasarawa states.
He said that all the projects were inherited from previous administrations.
“They are not new projects, they are projects that we inherited and we are trying to complete. So essentially they relate to cost revision because of the ages of the contracts and the prices of goods that have changed,” Fashola said.
