Since inception of democracy in 1999, Nigeria has never produced a pure civilian as president. The mandate of Late Musa Yaraduwa and Dr.Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, really produced a team of experts in the field of Academicians. Both of them were teachers in different academic environment.
After the death of Musa Yaraduwa (RIP), Jonathan was sworn in immediately according to Nigeria constitution. He took the mantle of leadership and completed their joined mandate ticket which lasted two years from 2009 to 2011.
From 2011 he had Architect Namadi Sambo as his ruling mate under Peoples Democratic party (PDP).Later he was emerged the overwhelming victorious winner. Certainly He because Nigerians needed a human, pure and educated person as president of the country.
As an educated President, he had in his cabinet men and woman of integrity. People with antecedents that contributed to the success story of his administration.
The some of success achieved in his regime include arresting the deadly Ebola virus deceased (EVD)outbreak, though it claimed some life.equal participation of woman in government and governance,introduction of cashless system policy,introduction of Alimajiri system of education for the northerners,liberation of the press and guaranteed freedom of speech,conducted free and fair elections in Nigeria. Just to mentioned but are few.All in the interest of true democracy, as a true Democrat. When he lost his last chance and tenure to then opposition party All progressive Congress (APC) in 2015,now the ruling party many thought he would had rejected the results, but no.Rather he congratulated the winner President Muhammadu Buhari.
Leniency is not weakness nor cowardice,only for peace, unity of the country Nigeria. As an educated, intellectual, true Democrat he is ,the whole has recommended, recognized,honour him as true Democrat.
Today, his good deeds speaks for him round the world and in African continent in particular. Recently he was appointed as envoy to Mail for peace talks.Because good name is better than diamond.
Thanks happy reading.
