Buhari said former President Jonathan had” within a short period rose from being a Deputy Governor, Governor, Vice President to becoming Nigeria’s President for six years.”
President Buhari said he believes that Jonathan’s foray into politics and ascendency to the highest political office in Nigeria from a humble riverine background testifies to the greatness and inclusiveness of Nigeria’s democracy, and serves as an invitation to all those with interest to add value to the nation.
