GEJ Conceded Defeat: a quest for peace in Nigeria


The aftermath of the 2015 general elections in Nigeria is taking another dimension as the outgoing President of the country President Goodluck Jonathan, queries the outcome of the March 28 presidential election, reports ITRealms.

According to Mr. President in a speech yesterday, he said he only conceded defeat and congratulated the president elect Gen. Muhammadu Buhari earlier before the announcement of the final result just for peace to reign in the country. “Yes, I did not consult anybody before I made that phone call but I made that phone call on behalf of all you and on behalf of the PDP.”  He said

The president emphasized that the People’s Democratic Party continue to remain a dominant political party. President Jonathan, who was speaking at the submission of the report of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation (PPCO) at the new banquet hall of the presidential villa, attributed the low number of votes for PDP to infighting ITRealms gathered.

He said looking at the results, the difference between both parties is just over two million votes. And that he least expected PDP to have low votes in those areas that were recorded low such as Kogi and Benue. It is below the party’s expectation despite all efforts made during the campaign process.

With the outcome of the election, he said that the country is his priority, and he would always ensure that the country is always at peace. He added that the fact that Nigeria is at peace during and after the elections is worth celebrating. President Jonathan said, confirming a report that some western countries have plans to evacuate their citizens from the country in preparation for a post-election crisis in Nigeria.

President Goodluck Jonathan said Nigeria as a country known to be the Giant of Africa is a great country that must be managed with care. He added that PDP remains the most organized party whose affairs are not in anybody’s hand. He consoled the party that the major thing about election is for the country to move forward it is not about who wins and who lost. The downfall of a man is never the end of the road, urging them to overlook the loss of the 2015 elections and bounce back in 2019.
