Buhari hails ex-President Jonathan at 62 – ‘Your legacy of patriotism will continue to inspire generations’

President Muhammadu Buhari has described his predecessor, former President Goodluck Jonathan, who clocked 62 on November 20, 2019, as a leader whose legacy of patriotism will continue to inspire generations. 

Buhari in a congratulatory message signed by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, extolled Jonathan for his good counsel to leaders in Nigeria and around the world since he left office. 

“President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with former President Goodluck Jonathan on his 62nd birthday, joining the nation in praying for longer life, good health and more strength to keep serving the nation,” the statement read.

“President Buhari rejoices with family, friends and political associates of the former president, lauding him for good counsel to leaders within and outside Nigeria since he left office, sharing his experience of serving at different levels of governance.

“President Buhari believes the former President’s legacy of humility and patriotism will continue to resonate, inspiring generations to come on the sacrifices made for the stability of democracy and promotion of sustainable development.

“The President wishes the former President and his family more years of joyful celebrations.”

Jonathan conceded the presidential election in 2015 to Buhari before the announcement of the final results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and never went to the tribunal to contest the outcome of the election.
