”You are a true democrat, you will rise again” – Buhari commends Jonathan

President Buhari today praised former president Goodluck Jonathan for voluntarily conceding defeat in the 2015 general election.

President Buhari said this at the unveiling of a book titled “My Transition Hours” by Jonathan.

Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, President Buhari said Jonathan is a true democrat whose act of courage had made him a patriotic leader and earned him popularity among Africans and other leaders.

“You are a leader of the past, of now and of the future; you will rise again; I wish you the best you wish yourself, ” Buhari said.

He called on Nigerians to see elections as contests, which should be done in a free, fair and peaceful environment.

He said Nigerians should relinquish bitterness, bigotry, hate speech and “promote Nigeria for us and generation yet unborn.”
