Despite speculations that Jonathan may have submitted his nomination and expression of interest forms and might be screened, he was not anywhere close to the venue of the exercise.

Reports say that President Muhammadu Buhari has asked governors elected under the APC platform, to allow him pick his successor.

Buhari made this request during a meeting with the Progressives Governors’ Forum in Abuja, on Tuesday.
