“You are a shining light during and after office as one of the Heads of State in Nigeria and Africa in general who willingly conceded power to the opposition in the interest of peace and democracy.” Ever since he stepped down from power, there have always been discussions around if, he will be contesting for the presidential seat again, come 2019.
However, we might as well bury such hopes and thoughts. While celebrating his birthday at his residence in Abuja, today, the former president had Femi Fani-Kayode, Timi Dakolo, Deji Adeyanju, Jonathan’s cousin Robert Azibaola, among others present. As many kept on praising him, Goodluck Jonathan said: “For a nation to grow we have to plan for our grandchildren. You can’t plan for me, I’m already gone.
You can’t plan for the old, you can only manage them. So, we must plan for our children and grandchildren.” Meanwhile, Femi Fani-Kayode also made a statement congratulating Jonathan, in which he said: “Happy 59th birthday to President Goodluck Jonathan, a man of honor and peace and one that has brought so much joy and hope to millions.
“You have proved to the world that African leaders can be competent, kind, gentle, humane and selfless. You have everything to be proud of and much still lies ahead for you in the affairs of our nation.”
