Atiku Regrets Not Supporting Jonathan In Last Election

A former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has described former President Goodluck Jonathan as a hero of democracy in Nigeria.


The former vice president made the assertion on Wednesday during a courtesy call on President Jonathan at his country home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State.  

Mr. Abubakar, who recalled Mr Jonathan’s exemplary decision to hand over the reins of power without qualms, observed that that singular historic decision set him apart as a democrat of unimpeachable credentials.

Mr. Abubakar, while reflecting on Mr Jonathan’s action that doused tension in the country at that time, noted that the situation in Nigeria may have been different if he (Jonathan) did not voluntarily relinquish power.
