A former media aide to president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has said Nigeria could have gone up in flames if Jonathan did not concede defeat.
He made the statement after some angry mobs invaded the US Congress yesterday when the law makers were deliberating over the results of the electoral college that produced Joe Biden.
Reno said President Buhari lost elections three times and refused to concede defeat. Buhari instead of accepting defeat ordered his supporters to unleash terror on Nigeria and hundred died.
What currently playing out in US should cause those who never appreciated what Johnathan did to have a rethink, Reno said.
He continued, “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!”
