Just In! President Jonathan Releases Early Statement On Electoral Defeat

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

  1. Lessons learnt about the whole GEJ saga losing as an incumbent.....Never be disloyal to those that put you in position(obasanjo), never underestimate the power of the social media,never abandon a section of a country (south west and north west),always guide over your utterance(stealing is not corruption),always caution your wife when she is going wrong (Mama Patience).

  6. "No person's political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigeria". By conceding defeat and congratulating Buhari, President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan has shown the whole world that he is a man of peace and a true compatriot. This singular action has diffused the tension, apprehension, and the time bomb that was about detonating over the presidential election. He has done what BUHARI wouldn't have ever tried, and this act will be remembered for long in the history of Nigeria.
    He may not have done well as a president but he has shown that he is not bent on clinging to power. Those who think that Nigeria is going to disintegrate by 2015 got it wrong.
    Long live Nigeria.
