AWW...PRESIDENT JONATHAN RELEASES TOUCHING OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON ELECTION LOSS (READ)


PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE
RESULTS OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2015
HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT TO NIGERIANS,

HIS STATEMENT READ,

Fellow Nigerians,
I thank you all for turning
out en-masse for the March 28 General Elections.

I promised the country free and fair elections. I have kept my word. I
have also expanded the space for Nigerians to participate in the
democratic process. That is one legacy I will like to see endure.

Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results
announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I
urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our
constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.

As I have always affirmed, nobody's ambition is worth the blood of any
Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is
more important than anything else.

I congratulate all Nigerians for successfully going through the
process of the March 28th General Elections with the commendable
enthusiasm and commitment that was demonstrated nationwide.

I also commend the Security Services for their role in ensuring that
the elections were mostly peaceful and violence-free.

To my colleagues in the PDP, I thank you for your support.

Today, the PDP should be celebrating rather than mourning.

We have established a legacy of democratic freedom, transparency,
economic growth and free and fair elections.

For the past 16 years, we have steered the country away from ethnic
and regional politics. We created a Pan-Nigerian political party and
brought home to our people the realities of economic development and
social transformation.

Through patriotism and diligence, we have built the biggest and most
patriotic party in Nigerian history. We must stand together as a party
and look to the future with renewed optimism.

I thank all Nigerians once again for the great opportunity I was given
to lead this country and assure you that I will continue to do my best
at the helm of national affairs until the end of my tenure.

I have conveyed my personal best wishes to General Muhammadu Buhari.

May God Almighty continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

I thank you all.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR
President,
Federal Republic of Nigeria
