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.’
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
