Be A Hero Like Jonathan And Go Back Home If You Lose - Ohanaeze Youths Advices Buhari 3

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Council have adviced President Muhammadu Buhari to emulate his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan to relinquish power should he lose this Saturday’s rescheduled Presidential election.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, gave the advice in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on Sunday while Fielding questions from journalists.

The President-General of the youth body, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, recalled how, in 2015, Jonathan’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost the election but handed over peacefully despite perceived pressure on him to do otherwise.

Subsequently, President Buhari became a beneficiary of the gesture. He said:

“We ask President Buhari to peacefully handover to anyone that wins, if the outcome of the election turns out to be against him. That’s the noble thing to do at this time.

“As a man with a good heart that he is, President Buhari has said it before that he lost previous elections since 2003.

“Former President Goodluck Jonathan did it and today he is a hero of democracy worldwide. Jonathan accepted defeat. Even when the indices then hadn’t all concluded he had lost in the 2015 presidential election, he called the incumbent and congratulated him.”

“Buhari will be under pressure not to handover but we believe he should rise above self and do the needful if he loses in the election.”
