But while speaking to reporters, who asked him questions regarding the 2023 general elections on Friday, Jonathan said there are still other issues to focus on ahead of the next election.

When asked if he would join the presidential race in 2023, he said, “It is too early to talk about that.”

The former president also spoke about the spate of insecurity in Nigeria and called for support for the federal government and the security agencies to overcome the challenges.

He further said Nigeria is not the only country affected by insecurity, adding that he had his challenges to deal with while in office.
