A community leader from Mgburugbu in Nkanu East local government area, Enugu state, Mr. Celestine Chukwu has lauded former President Goodluck Jonathan for his monumental achievements while in office.
Chukwu who spoke to Nigeria Pilot in Abuja, noted that though Jonathan was no more in office, his achievement and peaceful disposition has placed him as the best leader Nigeria has ever had.
According to him, “Former President Jonathan is a rare gem and father to all. His action has rooted democracy deeply. The peace we are enjoying today is as a result of his action. In fact, he is a quintessential leader of our time.
“The calamity that would have befallen this country was aptly frustrated by his approach to leadership. His show of humility led him to concede defeat even when such defeat is questionable.
“Jonathan is the peace and unity of this country in all ramifications. He is not interested in ethno-religious crisis or tribal dichotomy and that is why I started celebrating him from the day he handed over on May 29.
“You can’t celebrate a man who is just stepping into office, you celebrate one who has left office and served the people diligently. It is pertinent to understand that once you appreciate good leaders who exhibited good conduct, it will set precedence.”
He advised politicians to eschew politics of bitterness and witch hunt and embrace sincerity, tranquillity and accountability in their conduct.
