***Celebrates Former President 60th Birthday
By Chibuzo Ukaibe, Abuja
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Sunday said former President Goodluck Jonathan will be remembered as one of the greatest leaders in Africa.
The party stated this in a statement marking the 60th birthday anniversary of the former president.
According to the statement signed by the party’s national publicity secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the former president will be remembered for his economic policies and how he handed over power in 2015 willingly after he was defeated at the presidential election.
The party said “Your Excellency Sir, you are sixty years today and we are proud that you have made wonderful contributions to the stability of our democracy and the overall development of our country, Nigeria during the prime of your age.
“As you celebrate your birthday today, one thing Nigerians and members of the International community will never forget apart from your numerous and indelible achievements in office is your Campaign message in December 2014… “I am the most abused President in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember the freedom you enjoyed under my Government”.
The statement continued “Your Excellency, Nigerians will remember that under your administration our economy became the largest and number one in Africa. Nigeria witnessed unprecedented infrastructural development in all areas of the economy. Inflation was at single digits and we had a stable foreign exchange regime. You consolidated Nigerian democracy by ensuring free and fair elections culminating in the historic presidential election of March 2015 in which you graciously conceded defeat and congratulated your opponent even when there were substantial grounds to dispute the outcome. Most importantly the rule of law and the human rights of Nigerians was greatly respected. For these and many more you have written your name in gold in the hearts of all Nigerians and you will be remembered as one of the greatest leaders of Africa.
“We miss you and Nigerians will be forever grateful for the period you were in the saddle as the President of Nigeria. We love you and share in every moment of your joy and pains. May the Almighty God continue to protect and guide you in every areas of your life.”
