#1
The African Sun Times, Africa’s number one and largest newspaper in America, has announced Nigeria's former President, Goodluck Jonathan as its Persons of-the-Year.

The categories the newspaper has chosen last year include International Person of the Year, African Statesman of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Company of the Year, Pan-African Person of the Year, Diaspora Person of the Year, Most Influential Person of the Year Under 40, and the African Tourism Ambassador of the Year.

The Newspaper found Jonathan worthy for his roles in the 2015 general elections, quoting the paper, “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who shocked the whole world by swiftly calling current Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and conceding his defeat in the March 29 Nigerian presidential election, thereby stopping the predictions of violent bloodshed in Nigeria, and keeping his words that he would not allow the blood of a Nigerian to be shed to further his political ambitions”.

“Former President Jonathan must be applauded for creating a solid foundation for the growth of democracy in Africa”, the Newspaper said.

He conceded his defeat because He lost. I see nothing heroic about that.

only a newbie in political matters in Africa and Nigeria or one that has decided to deliberately deny the obvious will consider that as not heroic.

Well then, I guess you are a guru in African and Nigerian political affairs. Can you please tell me how what he did can be considered heroic? I'll really appreciate it.

I'm not a guru in African and Nigerian political affairs but a simple Google search for "causes and consequences of post election violence in Africa" may provide some education.

I have done that. What next sir?


Goodluck Jonathan, with his cronies almost wrecked the country. He did his best to bribe and rig his way into winning the elections, but he failed miserably. He was voted out despite the dollar rains, smear campaigns, propaganda and intimidation. He should be cooling his heels in jail by now..not accepting some awards from unknown and mediocre sources

Shame, not heroics made him concede defeat. I see nothing heroic about shame.

@Samguine Goodluck Jonathan has earned himself a remarkable profile in African democracy.

Is not a debate, but a fact. So your opinion is irrelevant.

Because it's an event that has come to be. And there is nothing you can do about it.

I was a Presiding officer in the last election and in Nothern Nigeria to be precise. If election conducts and results were something to go by, Jonathan had every reason to reject the results and go to court. The underage voting in the North was just too much. He can decide to challenge the result and refuse to relinquish power. That would have led to serious crises and several thousands of people might have died as a result. No one is saying he wasn't defeated but that he accepted his defeat without going to court at all, when he had every reason to do so made him a rare hero of Democracy in Africa. I think that feat is "visible to the blind and audible to the deaf.'

Now this is the funniest statement I have heard in the new year. He should have gone to court :D

By the way, Olisah Metuh, spokesman for the heroes has been arrested by the EFCC

Of course. That was why I put 'by the way'. I just put it there to let you know that the turn of the hero is coming very soon. Then the world who see him as he truly is.
