I’ll Continue Holding Goodluck Jonathan In High Esteem – Buhari

Valentine Chinyem



President Muhammadu Buhari has said he would continue to hold former President, Goodluck Jonathan, in high esteem, for accepting the outcome of the 2015 presidential election.

The President said this on Thursay at the Presidential Villa, while hosting some entertainers from Kannywood, the North’s movie industry.

He said: “I will continue to hold former President Jonathan in high esteem as a result of that singular act.

“He was in power as Deputy Governor (Bayelsa), Governor (Bayelsa), Vice-President and President, all for about 10 years, and he voluntarily accepted defeat and surrendered power to me.”

He urged the movie stars to keep promoting the culture of peaceful co-existence and unity among the diverse socio-political groups in Nigeria.

In addition, Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), who was also present at the gathering, tasked the entertainers to urge their fans to vote for the re-election of President Muhammadu, while also urging them to use their social-media platforms to promote the achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration ahead of the election.
