Jonathan’s acceptance of defeat historic – Arewa Forum

Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF)

The Arewa Consultative Forum has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for accepting defeat and congratulating Muhammadu Buhari on the outcome of the March 28 presidential election.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Chairman of ACF National Executive Committee, Ahmadu Coomasie, on Tuesday in Kaduna.

“This singular action of President Jonathan places him as the first sitting President to accept defeat and even congratulate his opponent in the Nigerian history of elections.

“This confirms Mr President’s earlier resolve to accept the outcome of the 2015 Presidential election and to place the nation above his personal ambition.

“ACF urges other contestants to emulate the magnanimity of President Jonathan.”

The group also congratulated the president-elect on his victory.

It described the election as a milestone and saluted Nigerians for their “perseverance, resilience, determination and hard work’’, which led to the successful and peaceful conduct of the polls.

“ACF urges all Nigerians to demonstrate the same spirit and commitment in the April 11 Governorship and State Assembly Elections.” (NAN)

    Arewa,really? Sounds like you are now singing a different tune. I thought you accused him of hating and destroying the country. Did you not promise to make the nation ungovernable should he win the election in 2011? And you did. For sure , one good turn deserves another now that the table has turned. It ain’t over by any means. Just stay tuned.

    One human act of PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN has DEMYSTIFIED the enitre AREWA conspiracy. My questions to AREWA are:
    Was it Worth the BLOOD of Your children, men and women that you killed for POWER to Return to the North?
    Will you get back these dead People to come back and enjoy Your NORTHERN PRESIDENCY?
    What importance has this Your NORHERN PRESIDENCY to all the People that you killed for POWER?
    WHAT DIFFERENCE is this NORTHERN PRESIDENCY going to do for the common man in Northern Nigeria within a four years time frame?
    Is Losing Your friends and principal allies Worth a four years presidency?
    Being seen as UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS now by Your previous long term ally is Worth a four years stay at the presidency?
    My conclusion is that this win by Buhari is a long term dis-service to the North.
