Today May 29th,2015,Goodluck Ebele Jonathan formally bowed out of his position as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria..His story is an inspiring yet,intricate one..Many believe his rise to power was nothing short of divine favor..But most importantly,thanks to one single phone call to his opponent and now president,Muhammadu Buhari,he is now widely received as a hero and the new face of democracy..
During the handover of his administration’s reports,new president Buhari told him
“You have earned yourself a place in Nigeria’s history for stabilizing our democracy. If you wanted to make things difficult, you could have but you didn’t and for that, you have won the respect of world leaders”
As President Jonathan said,
My second term ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian … In my political life, I have never been driven by the love of power.
He sure lived up to his words.He is indeed a hero of our time… If you had an opportunity to meet president Jonathan today what would you tell him?
