Former president of Nigeria,Goodluck Jonathan, has revealed to Nigerians why he cannot run for the presidential seat again despite various pleas to come back.
Jonathan made this known in an interview published in a book, ‘My Time As Chaplain In Aso Rock.”
According to him, contesting to be the president of Nigeria will diminish everything he stands for particularly after being booed out of office when he served.
He further stated that he enjoyed the drama that accompanied the rumour that he purchased the nomination form of the All Progressives Congress earlier in the year.

“I was enjoying the drama. At least they are not insulting me. After all, I was pursued out of the office that I was not good enough. So, if now, Nigerians are saying, ‘Oh, this man should come,’ that means they are cleaning me up. So, let me enjoy the drama.
“I was not disturbed. I know I cannot go and start struggling to be President again. It wasn’t only Nigerians who were asking me such questions, even most of the top ambassadors -the American ambassador, the UK High Commissioner, France, and all of them. They came to ask me whether I would contest. I don’t think I would contest any election.
“If you wake up tomorrow and see that I’m President again, that means there may have been circumstances beyond my control. But not to go and pick one form and go and start lobbying people and running for campaigns, be it PDP power or APC broom and moving across Nigeria. I can’t do that again; if I do that, I will diminish myself,” he stated.
