The African affairs, the Africa Political and Economic Strategic Center (AFRIPOL), has recommended former President, Goodluck Jonathan for the Nobel Peace Prize, given the way he conducted, conceded and peacefully handed over in the last general elections. Statement below;
He may have not promoted “fraternity between nations” but he surely promotes fraternal peace among Nigerians by conceding power.’
“concession speech by President Jonathan averted bloodshed, violence and imbroglio in the most populous country in Africa. This gesture by Jonathan buttressed to the whole world that Nigeria has joined the comity of civilized nations.
Nigeria can be said to have shown great leadership in Africa and made Africans in general and Nigerians in particular to comprehend that transfer of power does not need to be violent but rather peaceful as heralded by the outgoing president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan.
