“I can assure you that the president has accepted to step down for the senate president, David Mark. He has accepted to support him during and after the election,” the source said.
The source also said, “this decision came after several meetings and consultations with party leaders. It is obvious some people don’t want Jonathan. The ongoing activities in some parts of the country tell it all and the only option left is for him to pull out of the race.”
Asked if the incumbent president would be given any federal appointment, the source said the president has agreed to return to his Otueke home, from where he will go back to classroom.
A media aide to the President, while debunking the news, said there was no element of truth in it.
