Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has shower encomium on incumbent Ghanaian President John Mahama, for conceding defeat in the just concluded Ghana Presidential election, in which he lost to candidate of the opposition Nana Akufo-Addo.
In the same light, the former Nigerian leader congratulated the president -elect in a new post on his official Facebook page.
Like Goodluck Jonathan, who called the then All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to concede defeat in the 2015 Presidential election, President Mahama, also called Nana Akufo-Addo, to concede defeat.
Mahama, called Akufo-Addo to congratulate him on his victory, even before the country’s electoral commission announced the final result.
Jonathan while reacting to the development posted on his Facebook wall:
I am immensely proud of the maturity and high patriotism displayed by President John Mahama who has just conceded to Mr. Nana Akufo-Addo.
Some may erroneously think that President Mahama lost today. Not at all. Not at all. He has gained honor that will never depart from him.
I congratulate Mr. Nana Akufo-Addo and urge him to immediately begin the process of reuniting the nation of Ghana.
I also urge him to appreciate the great strides and achievements of President John Mahama when that time comes. To accelerate the growth of the economy, all Ghanaians irrespective of political divide should be involved. GEJ.
