The invitation of All Progressives Congress (APC) to President Goodluck Jonathan to join the party is an acknowledgment of his sterling leadership qualities, the Presidency said on Wednesday.
Speaking with State House Correspondents in Abuja on Wednesday, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati described the invitation as a compliment.
“The APC Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande’s invitation has shown that leaders of the opposition party recognise that Jonathan is presently the best man for the job,” he said.
However, he criticised leaders of the new party leaders for forming a party only to realise that they do not have a credible candidate.
“I think it is a compliment. What Chief Akande has said in essence is that President Jonathan is the best man for the job.
“They formed a party only to realise they don’t have a candidate. We thank him for his acknowledgment of the president’s leadership qualities, but the president is happy where he is.
“We thank Chief Akande for his expression of confidence in President Jonathan’s credibility but the president is happy where he is, as a member and leader of the Peoples Democratic Party to which he remains loyal, and under the umbrella of which he is leading a transformation agenda for the betterment of the lives of Nigerians.”
