Atiku, Obi celebrate former President Goodluck Jonathan at 66


Former President Goodluck Jonathan received congratulatory wishes on his 66th birthday from the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 25 presidential elections, Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi.

Abubakar, in a post on his X account on Monday morning, praised Jonathan, describing him as a prominent figure who embodies the values of democracy, peace, and freedom. “Your unwavering commitment to these ideals continues to inspire and guide practitioners of democracy, not just in the sub-region but the entire African continent.

“As we celebrate this remarkable milestone, I extend heartfelt wishes for your continued robust health and profound wisdom. May your journey ahead be as impactful and enriching as the legacy you’ve built,” he said.

He lauded Jonathan’s recent mission to Liberia for their election, which led to a run-off. He stated that the election made many Nigerians nostalgic about Jonathan’s sacrifice for democracy in the country in 2015.

“God will continue to bless you for that rare patriotism that elevated our beloved country in global democracies worldwide, notwithstanding spirited efforts to undermine it. That singular act of yours, accompanied by the landmark quote “My political ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian” says it all about your commitment to democracy where the will of the people prevails. “As you celebrate this unique day in your life, it’s my prayer that God Almighty will bless and keep you in good health of mind and body for many more positive things for our country and humanity,” he wrote. Jonathan, who served as the president of Nigeria from 2010 to 2015, was born in 1957 in Bayelsa State.
