PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN AND GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI (PRESIDENT ELECT)

PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN AND GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI                    (PRESIDENT ELECT)

History was made yesterday as General Muhammadu Buhari was elected the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan in what has been termed the least controversial elections in the history of the nation’s democracy. After running for the position in four consecutive elections, he finally became the people’s choice. Some have said his persistence finally paid off; and perhaps his new mantra “CHANGE” which probably became the most used word in the country in the past few months.

While the nation waits for the president-elect to officially take over office come May 29th, we also celebrate a man who many have termed a “HERO”; the outgoing president; President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan. It is indeed rare for incumbent to be voted out of office especially when he could have defied all protocols to turn the elections in his favour. He said during his campaign that his re-election wasn’t worth the life of a single Nigerian. He indeed kept to his word in ensuring a free and fair electoral process. He also showed himself to be a much better leader than many acknowledge when he called to congratulate the president-elect even before the results were officially announced. Defying the numerous controversial statements made by many Nigerians and even an ex-president and an elder statesman; he has indeed proved himself a true leader.

Nigeria’s democracy also recorded a great victory as it is the very first time an opposition party would defeat a ruling party. Not just that, but without bloodshed amidst fear and numerous negative prophesies. The world was focused on Nigeria. Almost everyone anticipated excessive bloodshed, including numerous powerful men of God. The rest of the world watched as though this was the final straw that would finally pull the country apart. But we showed that our democracy had finally grown beyond violence and that Nigeria is far beyond negative prophesies.

NIGERIA DECIDES

NIGERIA DECIDES

Now, as Nigeria awaits its new leader, irrespective of who or what you support or believe in, we should all join hands in support of the new government. Not waiting for the new government to fail just because you are in support of the opposition party. A better Nigeria would be of benefit to each and every one of us; whether you are of the ruling party or the opposition. Nigeria does not belong to a single party. It belongs to us all and we have proven that in breaking this new record.

And yes we can now return to our lives!!!

GOD BLESS NIGERIA AND GOD BLESS YOU

LET’S HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS…

UNTIL NEXT TIME…. CONGRATULATIONS NIGERIA… XOXO

    Nice and encouraging piece! Congrats to GMB! Goodluck and Jega are the hero of the moment. Goodluck was calm and relaxed despite the fact that the card reader played a fast one on him and his wife several times. That alone would have caused an outburst. Prior to the election,GEJ announced to the public on his media broadcast that-everyone should vote his or her choice of candidate and no individual’s blood should be shed on account of the Nigeria struggle- GEJ seized to campaign for himself @ d dying minuite. He took the loss with maturity by calling to congratulate GMB. If GMB had lost,I bet you, the country would have been in chaos as we speak right now! Jega stood his ground and did what he deemed fit! God bless Nigeria! God bless everyone in diaspora who contributed their quota! God help GMB! We’re back to the days of our lives… Have a relaxed moment,Ame!
