The former secretary general of the commonwealth, Emeka Anyaoku said that Nigeria owes President Goodluck Jonathan a debt of gratitude. Speaking after what can be described as the last breakfast meeting of the Presidential Advisory council on international relations with Dr Jonathan as President of Nigeria , the former commonwealth scribe said that the singular act of President Jonathan calling Muhammadu Buhari even before the final presidential election result was announced, earned Nigeria a great deal of admiration abroad.
According to Anyaoku who is the chairman of the council ‘we had an excellent valedictory meeting. It is the last for our council. It is the last time we are meeting with the outgoing president.
‘We told him that our nation Nigeria owe him huge debt of gratitude for what he has done in terms of the success of the elections and above all in terms of the gesture of picking up the telephone and congratulating the president-elect ever before the final results of the elections were announced.
‘That singular act has earned our country a great deal of admiration and respect abroad. We thank, congratulate and wish him well in his future endeavours.’
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
