Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has said he didnโ€™t authorize the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential nomination form purchased for him by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breedersโ€™ Association.

It was reported that the group on Monday, procured the forms for Jonathan in Abuja.

But reacting through a statement issued by Jonathanโ€™s spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, he said the former president had no link to the northern coalition that purchased the form.

He admonished those behind the charade to desist from further defacing his name and urged Nigerians to disregard it.

According to him, buying a presidential aspiration form in his name, without his consent, knowing the position he had held in the country, was considered an insult.
