What African leaders must learn from Goodluck Jonathan

What African leaders must learn from Goodluck Jonathan

What African leaders must learn from Goodluck JonathanWhat African leaders and Leaders to be must learn from Goodluck Jonathan are worth discussing. Many are the political leaders from all over Africa that have sent in their messages, congratulating not only the newly elected leader of Africa’s most populous nation Nigeria but also to the outgoing leader Goodluck Jonathan.

It is beautiful and heartwarming to hear leaders upon leaders in Africa give these two personalities thumbs up for how well they conducted themselves just after the elections.

Both parties in opposition and those in power from almost every part of Africa is saying Nigeria has done well. Yes they have done well and I agree with them all but I have a big question and challenge for our leaders and would be political leaders. How would you as a leader act if you were in the shoes of Goodluck Jonathan?

Many are the terrors the poor in Africa go through just when the electoral commission is about to declare results or after the declaration of election results in national elections. Unfounded tension, sweeps across nations, getting everyone scared. Both those in opposition and in power who are winning or losing narrowly begin to exaggerate challenges of the election and make it look as though they are holy and the other evil. They begin to justify why they must be winners and not losers and play on the intelligence of the citizenry.

Some of these misunderstandings sometimes turn into national conflicts and hence dreams of the youth are silenced in cold blood in the struggle for power by people who are hungry for power and want to lead at all cost at the peril of the lives of others.

I look forward to how those who are in power in other countries in Africa will react when they lose elections, as well as how those in opposition who are praising the exploits of former president Goodluck Jonathan and newly elected president Gen. Muhammadu Buhari

The vanquish of the Nigerian election may have several genuine reasons why he may not accept the results but he showed the world that he loved his nation and the people first and that he had no personal selfish ambitions and interest.

My advice to our political leaders at all levels is simple. “Praise Goodluck Jonathan and newly elected president Gen. Muhammadu Buhari  now and copy their response to election results as you also go to the pools to seek the mandate of your people in future.”
