Former President Jonathan Talks on Achievements & Nigeria’s Restructuring

The immediate past president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan who was spotted in an interactive session with Nigerian students in Kuching, on Friday, has delivered a powerful speech at the World Peace Summit.

Speaking while delivering the keynote address at a peace summit organised by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) in Malaysia on Friday, former President Goodluck Jonathan says his major inspiration all through his life as a public office holder was to lead with conscience.

The immediate past president who disclosed that such inspiration is in line with his personal philosophy that

“my political ambition is not worth the blood of anybody”, added that it was the major reason why he decided to concede defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 presidential election.

“I can confidently say that in all my public life, I was inspired to lead by conscience. This is in agreement with my personal philosophy which I first proclaimed while running for the office of the governor of my home state Bayelsa in 2006, and re-echoed when I ran for the office of the president of Nigeria in 2011 and 2015,” he said.

“Ever since I said that in November of 2006 in Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa State, I have always lived by it. This philosophy informed my decision to concede the 2015 presidential election, even while the results were still being collated.”
