Again, President Buhari Hails Former President Jonathan, Reveals People He Disappointed

President Muhammadu Buhari has again commended his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, for conceding defeat in the 2015 election.

But the president said several factors, including foreign pressure and contributions by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ensured a smooth transition.

Mr. Buhari said this Thursday at Transcorp Hilton Hotel Abuja at the Leadership Newspaper annual Awards ceremony.

The president, alongside Mr. Jonathan, and the immediate past chairman of INEC, Attahiru Jega, were honoured by the newspaper as the 2015 Leadership Persons of the Year.

“Those of us who were participating actors in the election were led by the higher ideal of the future of our great country and the well-being of our people rather than a mere desire of politicians to win elections,” the president said.

“It is therefore, our commitment to these ideal, the patriotic zeal of President Jonathan, the patriotism of the electoral umpire, INEC, and exemplary conduct of the political parties, foreign pressure and other actors that collectively disappointed the prophets of doom, who predicted the disintegration of the country after the 2015 general elections,” the president said.jonathan4
