Jonathan congratulates Obama

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has congratulated President Barack Obama of the United States of America who was on Wednesday pronounced the winner of the country’s presidential election.
A statement by presidential aide, Dr. Reuben Abati said: “President Jonathan welcomes President Obama’s victory in an intensely fought presidential race as an endorsement by the good people of United States of his leadership, progressive world view and the very good work he has done in the past four years towards ending global economic depression and fostering global peace and security.
“Nigeria, the Economic Community of West African States and the African Union enjoyed very cordial and productive relations with the Obama Administration in his first term; President Jonathan looks forward to continuing to build on Nigeria’s and Africa’s developmental collaboration with the United States in the next four years.
“The President looks forward in particular to the further strengthening of US-Nigeria bilateral relations and the US-Nigeria Bi-National Commission which was established in President Obama’s first term as the primary platform for the promotion of greater trade and economic cooperation between both countries as well as bilateral collaboration in other areas.
“President Jonathan also hopes that the millions of people across the world, especially those in developing nations who watched the beauty and strength of democracy unfold in the United States presidential elections yesterday will come to a greater and better appreciation of democracy as the key to building peaceful, stable and progressive societies.
“The President wishes President Obama continued good health and God’s blessings and guidance as he prepares for his inauguration in January for a second term in office as the President of the United States of America.”

    Hope Nigeria and their politicians learn one thing or two from American elections. Civility, decorum and rancor free atmosphere prevail. Election night in America is always fun. The tv stations really do a good job. As for the election, Obama won b/cos majority of the American people hate extremism whether right-wing or left-wing.

    Romney is talking & behaving like one of us in Nigerrrrrrr! Pls, someone shld advice him to accept defeat & congratulate Obama in the spirit of sportsmanship. There is always another time! Congratulations Obama!!!! Hope you will remove the spirit of Africa & leave a good & lasting legacy. The whole world is watching you.

  12. Soggy November 7, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    9thmile, you got it right. In Nigeria winners of elections are hardly ever congratulated by those that competed with them. Merely announcing election results takes great courage in this country because one could just get killed doing it. Well, they say “there is no news as bad news”. Your comment has kept me laughing long enough, but I hope to laugh more when I read same in our national dailies. I know I won’t be disappointed.

  13. Mbadiwe November 7, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    @ Hilary Oko for more information about what?

  14. Mbadiwe November 8, 2012 at 12:02 am

    Politics in Nigeria is a ‘Do or die’ affair,nobody even parties accepts defeat. They want to get into power by all means and at all cost. Where you have two or more candidates struggling for the same post,it’s obvious that only one person gets it. But the problem in Nigeria and with Nigerian politicians is “why not me” Only God will help us.

    Illuminatic don rian God help us

    GEJ and all corrupt Nigerian politicians should be ashamed of (himself) themselves for congratulating President Obama on his re-election because instead of doing this, they should rather cover their faces in the mood and learn from this. They are simply embarassing themselves by doing this — a bunch of shameless looters and idiots!

  17. Usman November 9, 2012 at 7:16 am

    Jonathan is ashamed that is why he did not congratulate Obama, it was his chief propagandist, Reuben who congratulated him.
