NIGERIANS CELEBRATE PRESIDENT GOODLUCK’S SPIRIT OF SPORTSMANSHIP. CHIDI MARTINS WROTE:
TO PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN
Even in the face of “defeat” you did not disappoint those of us that believe in your maturity, sincerity, ability and humility which are rare leadership qualities that set you apart; the very reason why some of us kept supporting you ever till the very end.
An Achiever You Are!
A True National Hero You Are!
You have written your name on the sands of time, but not as much as in the hearts of men.
History, time and generation next will judge you right for putting our national interest, peace and unity far above your personal ambition like you have always said….”You Stole The Show Again”.
Being the first to congratulate your opponent General Buhari, even before the final result was announced, for us it was super heroic and a mark of a true statesman.
It is better to lose like a winner, than win like a loser…..YES! “It is much better priced, to lose the war and win the peace; than win the war and lose the peace”.
You have yet again set a standard in Nigerian Democratic Horizon….THUS; WE SALUTE YOUR HUMBLE COURAGE STILL!
– BUHARI WON THE ELECTION!
– GOODLUCK WON OUR HEART!!
– NIGERIANS WON THE PEACE!!!
GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!!
Dr. Charles Awuzie (@pastorcharlesc) had earlier tweeted “I nominate President Goodluck Jonathan for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Share if you agree.” and the tweet is going viral on both twitter and facebook.
I thank you all for turning out en-masse for the March 28 General Elections.
I promised the country free and fair elections. I have kept my word. I have also expanded the space for Nigerians to participate in the democratic process. That is one legacy I will like to see endure.
Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.
As I have always affirmed, nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else.
I congratulate all Nigerians for successfully going through the process of the March 28th General Elections with the commendable enthusiasm and commitment that was demonstrated nationwide.
I also commend the Security Services for their role in ensuring that the elections were mostly peaceful and violence-free.
To my colleagues in the PDP, I thank you for your support. Today, the PDP should be celebrating rather than mourning. We have established a legacy of democratic freedom, transparency, economic growth and free and fair elections.
For the past 16 years, we have steered the country away from ethnic and regional politics. We created a Pan-Nigerian political party and brought home to our people the realities of economic development and social transformation.
Through patriotism and diligence, we have built the biggest and most patriotic party in Nigerian history. We must stand together as a party and look to the future with renewed optimism.
I thank all Nigerians once again for the great opportunity I was given to lead this country and assure you that I will continue to do my best at the helm of national affairs until the end of my tenure.
I have conveyed my personal best wishes to General Muhammadu Buhari.
May God Almighty continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I thank you all.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR
Federal Republic of Nigeria
