Is Goodluck Jonathan Good Enough For The Mo Ibrahim Prize?

VENTURES AFRICA – A couple of days ago, African business mogul, Mo Ibrahim, lavished praises on Nigeria’s outgoing president, Goodluck Jonathan, for delivering on his promise of a free and fair presidential election, and honourably accepting the outcome even as it was his defeat. This special recognition of Jonathan by the proprietor of the Mo Ibrahim foundation has raised the possibility of the Nigerian president receiving the renowned Mo Ibrahim prize for governance.

The Mo Ibrahim prize celebrates African heads of government who perform creditably in office and do not seek to entrench themselves in power. It grants the recipient $5million over ten years and guarantees a life time payment of $200,000 thereafter. The most recent winner of the prize is Namibia’s former president Hifikepunye Pohamba, international acclaimed for strengthening his country’s democratic values and socio-economic equality. President Jonathan, by ensuring credible polls, submitting to its outcome al…

President Jonathan Releases Statement On 2015 Presidential Election Result

Fellow Nigerians,
I thank you all for turning out en-masse for the March 28 General Elections.
I promised the country free and fair elections. I have kept my word. I have also expanded the space for Nigerians to participate in the democratic process. That is one legacy I will like to see endure.

Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.

As I have always affirmed, nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else.

I congratulate all Nigerians for successfully going through the process of the March 28th General Elections with the commendable enthusiasm and commitment that was demonstrated nationwide.

I also commend the Security Services for their role in ensuring that the elec…

2015 General Elections; A Momentous Feat For Our Democracy

By David Adetula


Congratulations to the people's General Muhammadu Buhari on his victory in the 2015 #NigeriaDecides. He has taught me and many other Nigerian youths the essence of resilience and doggedness in pursuit of success and excellence. I have been bothered and I remain bordered about the 'old wine in new skin' who surround #GMB. These ones are dangerous creatures in sheep clothings who are more than capable of turning Buhari against the masses in record time. Sai baba needs to be very careful!
Hmmm, I do not really know how best to describe President Goodluck Jonathan now but with all sincerity and honesty of heart, the much needed foundation for our democratic setting has been laid today. Big thanks to #PGEJ. Despite all odds, I will remember Jonathan for giving us relatively free & fair elections and passing the #FOI bill into law. These amongst many other things he gave us. I personally laughed w…
