Today, President Jonathan paid a private visit to previous Minister of Defense, General Theophilus Danjuma at his home to talk about approaches to have a smooth transition on May 29th.
Addressing the press after the meeting, Danjuma said president Jonathan has set a record in the historical backdrop of the nation by conceding defeat.
He said if previous Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu had acted like Jonathan by yielding defeat, the civil war would have been maintained a strategic distance from.
“The outcome of the election and the manner in which President Jonathan conceded victory to Buhari, is total un-African, it is very important in the history of Africa. Ojukwu did the same after the fall of Enugu, if he had conceded victory to the federal troops he would have saved the nation one full year of bloodshed. President Jonathan has set a record, made history, something to be emulated by the rest of Africa and indeed the whole world.” He said (Source – Vanguard)
