Former Minister of Defence, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma has said president Goodluck Jonathan has set a record in Nigeria’s history by conceding defeat adding that if former Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu had behaved like Jonathan by conceding defeat, the civil war would have been avoided.
Danjuma stated this after a private meeting with President Jonathan at the president’s home.
He said: “The outcome of the election and the manner in which President Jonathan conceded victory to Buhari, is total un-African, it is very important in the history of Africa”.
“Ojukwu did the same after the fall of Enugu, but if he had conceded victory to the federal troops he would have saved the nation one full year of bloodshed”. President Jonathan has set a record, made history, something to be emulated by the rest of Africa and indeed the whole world.”
