Why Goodluck Jonathan is an angel — Ganduje
Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has described former President Goodluck Jonathan as an angel for conceding defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 without pressure.
Speaking at an event in Abuja, on Tuesday, the governor said Jonathan earned Nigeria and Africa a good name among nations while commending him for revolutionizing the almajiri school system in the North.
“I agree with those who call you an angel for conceding defeat. I salute you for that. You have made a name not just for yourself, but for Nigeria, Africa, all developing countries, and for democracy. So, I salute you.
“We salute you for what you did in that regard. We are multiplying the new model of almajiri schools in Kano. That is an important legacy you left for us,” Ganduje said.
Jonathan had contested and lost the 2015 presidential election under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Before Buhari’s victory was officially declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the former president had called President Buhari to congratulate him, an act that calmed the tension in the country.
