The Vice President of the United States (US), Mr Joe Biden, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan, on his leadership quality.
Biden noted that his actions to accept the results of the presidential poll and his steps to ensure a successful transition has not only strengthened Nigeria’s democracy but set a strong example for Africa and the world.

“The Vice President noted that President Jonathan’s actions to accept the results and congratulate President-elect Buhari, as well as his steps to date to ensure a successful transition, have strengthened Nigeria’s democracy and set a strong example for Africa and the world.
“The Vice President encouraged President Jonathan to remain engaged and play a leadership role in global issues after his presidency ends.”
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
