Nigerians have criticised a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, over his call for the return of Goodluck Jonathan as President in 2023.
Fani-Kayode posted a ‘#BringBackGEJ picture’ on his Twitter page, drawing the ire of Nigerians.

Jonathan was Nigeria’s President from 2009 till 2015.
The former President has been rumoured to be eyeing a return to office.
Jonathan denied the claims before the 2019 presidential election, which Muhammadu Buhari won to get his second tenure as Nigerian President.
Reacting to the issue, a Twitter user said, “Fani Kayode should know this too that both parties (PDP and APC) have failed this country. Buhari’s failed government will not make us to forget that GEJ is not the way for good health, 24 hours electricity for Nigerians.”
@abbaslytlgirl wrote, “Bringing back GEJ will be an avenue for power to remain in the North and that’s what they want. If GEJ comes back he will only do one tenure and give the North the power and I bet yall no other region will feel that power or have it. So stop crying to bring GEJ.”
@freaky_joe wrote, “@realFFK, I beg you in the name of whatever you believe as the only greatest deity. Please, let this man stay at home in peace. This wouldn’t be nice oooo. I respect you and your words. But please let him rest.”
Hia, see how Buhari’s incompetence and cluelessness is making this one look good. All of them are bad please.— Blessed Beyond Measure (BBM) (@Drmuzoic) October 5, 2020

No sir it won’t be nice, we are tired of recycling politicians. We have over 200 million people in this country, when will the youth have a chance to direct their own future if the old ones refuse to let go of power?— Samuel S.A (@Count_Euro) October 5, 2020
