President Goodluck Jonathan, has been named the 2015 International Person of the Year by The African Sun Times. This award is coming
at the nick of time. No matter what haters would say about this man, he believed that his political ambition does not worth the blood of any NIGERIAN by conceding defeat in 2015 General elections and even calling his opponent in that election and sending his congratulatory message. That singular action actually wowed so many people across the globe.
In a facebook message, he dedicates this award to Nigerians.
Below is the message:
I thank The African Sun Times for naming me as its International Person of the year, 2015. I am indeed humbled by this honour. When I think about it, I understand why this medium may have thought me worthy of such an honour. However, I believe that my people, the Nigerian people, are more deserving of this honour. We, the Nigerian people put to shame naysayers and prophets of doom and in 2015, we held a most transparent, violence free and credible elections that transferred power from one political party to another and from an incumbent to the opposition, without rancour, bitterness or strife. In the process, we proved that nobody's political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian or any national of any country for that matter. That to me, is a most worthy testimonial of the character of the Nigerian nation and the resilience of our people which is why I dedicate this honour to them. May God continue to bless Nigeria and Nigerians. GEJ.'
Kindly share this precious message with your friends.
This man deserves to be celebrated anyday any time!
