ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – President Muhammadu has again paid tribute to former President Goodluck Jonathan, saying Jonathan’s “display of statesmanship in setting a precedent for us that now made our people proud to be Nigerians wherever they are”.
Speaking at the Eagle Square, Abuja today (Friday) after his swearing in as President of Nigeria, Buhari said “With the support and cooperation he has given to the transition process, he (Jonathan) has made it possible for us to show the world that despite the perceived tension in the land we can be a united people capable of doing what is right for our nation. Together we co-operated to surprise the world that had come to expect only the worst from Nigeria. I hope this act of graciously accepting defeat by the outgoing President will become the standard of political conduct in the country.
“I am immensely grateful to God Who Has preserved us to witness this day and this occasion. Today marks a triumph for Nigeria and an occasion to celebrate her freedom and cherish her democracy. Nigerians have shown their commitment to democracy and are determined to entrench its culture. Our journey has not been easy but thanks to the determination of our people and strong support from friends abroad we have today a truly democratically elected government in place.”
