The Bayelsa State chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Dennis Otiotio, has said former President, Goodluck Jonathan, is officially not yet a member of the APC in the state.
Otiotio said this in a chat with The Punch on Thursday morning.
He said the former president could only join the APC if he had been formally granted a waiver by the national chairman of the party, Adamu Abdullahi.
Otiotio spoke amid speculations that the former president had joined the APC in his Ogbia ward in Bayelsa.
He said, “I think the person you people should be asking the question is the national chairman of the party. He should be the one to grant him (Jonathan) waiver.
“As of now, he has not officially joined our party. Ask the national chairman if he has granted him a waiver.”
Otiotio added that it would be great if Jonathan decides to formally move to the APC.
