President Muhammadu Buhari has once again commended former president, Goodluck Jonathan, for accepting the outcome of the 2015 presidential election. Speaking while hosting members of Kannywood to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday evening, Buhari said he would continue to hold Jonathan in high esteem because of that decision. The President, who spoke in Hausa said: “I will continue to hold former President Jonathan in high esteem as a result of that singular act. He was in power as deputy governor, governor of Bayelsa, vice-president and president, all for about 10 years and he voluntarily accepted defeat and surrendered power to me.”

He urged the entertainers to continue to use their talent to promote the culture of peaceful co-existence and unity among the diverse socio-political groups in the country. On his part, secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, said that the fans of the entertainers guarantee Buhari, at least five million votes in the 2019 presidential election. He then urged them to use their social media platforms to promote the achievements of the Buhari administration. He also thanked the entertainers for the role they played in 2015 elections which contributed immensely to the victory of Buhari in the presidential election, while calling on them to repeat the same, in 2019. Representatives of Kannywood who spoke at the event, pledged to mobilise support for Buhari and other candidates of the All Progressives Congress, in the forthcoming elections.
