Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria, TAN, yesterday commended President Goodluck Jonathan for laying solid foundation for democracy in Nigeria and Africa with his statesmanly act of conceding defeat to the president-elect, noting that the single act saved Nigeria from disaster.
National coordinator of TAN, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah said the action exhibited by by President Jonathan proved TAN right when they published an advert, ‘Thank you Nigeria for Giving Us Goodluck,’ even as he noted that the outgoing president did not disappoint Nigerians.
While congratulating the president -elect, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, TAN praised his consistency, persistence, doggedness and resilience since 2003 in his quest for the presidency of Nigeria.
Ubah said Buhari’s persistence and courage would make a good case study in universities all over the world.
“To the glory of God, the election has come and gone without the expectations of doomsday sayers coming to pass. We of the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria express our gratitude to God and Nigeria. We appeal to all Nigerians to accept the outcome of the presidential election as the will of God, Nigerians and lovers of democracy. Nigerians should avoid actions that will bring disrepute to Nigeria. The 2015 presidential election has proven that democracy has come to stay in Nigeria.”
Chief Ubah assured that TAN would continue on its primary objectives which are public advocacy, humanitarian activities and employment generation for the youth, noting that TAN would not abandon its role in any form or manner.
He called on Nigerians irrespective of their religious, ethnic and political affiliations to respect the outcome of the election in the interest of peace, progress, unity and development of the country.
“TAN has no regret over its role in the presidential election. We have a nice president and his action to concede defeat proves that he is a statesman. Those who were expected to market him failed in their bid and I believe that posterity will always remember him for good.”
Speaking on the task before the president-elect, Chief Ubah said TAN and Nigerias would be on the watch.
“We will watch at the stand and see what the president-elect has for Nigeria. He has made electoral promises, let us see how it works out. We will support him and look at areas he will want us to work with him.”
Meanwhile, Ubah said TAN would be meeting in the next few days to map out plans and strategies for the governorship elections slated for April 11 nationwide and are ready to work with PDP candidates seeking for election.
