Former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has compared Buhari to the current US President Donald Trump, over his refusal to concede defeat.
Acccording to Reno Omokri, Goodluck thought about the welfare of the people of Nigeria when he conceded defeat even before the results of the election was declared. He took to his Instagram page and compared the stbborness of Donald Trump to that of Buhari who refused to concede defeat after losing elections for 3 times. He wrote: What is currently happening in the US should cause those who never appreciated what Jonathan did to have a rethink. Nigeria could have gone up in flames if Jonathan did not concede. Not only did he concede, he did so while the results were still being collated. He then addressed the country on the same day, in a national broadcast and urged his supporters to accept the results of the election. Jonathan had staunch supporters. But his power of love was greater than his love for power. Muhammadu Buhari lost three elections and never conceded. In 2011, his supporters unleashed terror on Nigeria and hundreds died. It is now that Nigerians and the world will appreciate the man who said “my ambition is not worth the blood of any citizen”. May God bless Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan!
