PDP caucus hails Jonathan for strengthening democracy, economy
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the House of Representatives has paid glowing tribute to the former President Goodluck Jonathan for his role in strengthening democratic rule in the country.
The caucus, led by Mr. Kingsley Chinda, while felicitating with Jonathan on the occasion of his 63rd birthday anniversary, described him as an apostle of “politics without bitterness.”
Reminiscing his role while on the saddle, the caucus described Jonathan as a firm believer in the country’s unity.
It said: “Dr. Jonathan, who believes that his “ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian,” championed electoral reforms and restored the people’s hope in the electoral process.
“Similarly, he entrenched democratic ethos of respect for rule of law, fundamental human rights of citizens and freedom of expression.
“In a continent plagued with sit-tight leaders, President Jonathan willingly conceded the 2015 presidential election, regardless of the perceived irregularities in that election, even before the final results were declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“Since his exit as president, he has remained an ambassador of peace, good governance and credible elections in the country, African and the world at large.
“President Jonathan, over the years, has distinguished himself as a committed democrat and selfless leader with an unwavering commitment to the peace, progress and unity of our country…”
