By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has poured encomiums on ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat to Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 general polls.
Ganduje made this known while speaking at a book launch in Abuja in Jonathan’s favour, where he said that the acceptance of the result of the election by the former President was a boost for Africa and democracy in general.
According to a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Ganduje was quoted as saying that,
“After the 2015 presidential election, suddenly we learned that you congratulated the President-elect then, Muhammadu Buhari. Not only that we were shocked, we were also marvelled. We said this must be a true Nigerian.
“We salute you for that Sir. You did not make the name for yourself, but for Nigeria, Africa and other developing nations of the world and for democracy as a whole.
“During the United States of America’s presidential election, it was around 2 am, when I was watching the result of the election when President Donald Trump was refuting the results.
“A friend of mine said to me ‘Goodluck Jonathan must be an Angel.’ I asked ‘why? He said ‘Look President Trump is refuting election results.”
