Goodluck Jonathan Gets Recommended For Nobel Peace Award


Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan
has been recommended for the Nobel Peace
Prize by a public policy organisation on
African affairs, the Africa Political & Economic
Strategic Center (AFRIPOL).
The organisation noted that the will of Alfred
Nobel, the progenitor of Nobel Prize stated
that Peace Prize be awarded to whoever “shall
have done the most or the best work for
fraternity between nations, for the abolition or
reduction of standing armies and for the
holding and promotion of peace congresses”.
Accordingly the organisation held that the
‘peaceful way President Jonathan conceded to
President-elect Buhari deserves the attention
of Nobel Peace Prize committee.
He may have not promoted “fraternity between
nations” but he surely promotes fraternal
peace among Nigerians by conceding power.’
The group maintained that the “concession
speech by President Jonathan averted
bloodshed, violence and imbroglio in the most
populous country in Africa.
This gesture by Jonathan [sic] buttressed to
the whole world that Nigeria has joined the
comity of civilized nations.
Nigeria can be said to have shown great
leadership in Africa and made Africans in
general and Nigerians in particular to
comprehend that transfer of power does not
need to be violent but rather peaceful as
heralded by the outgoing president of Nigeria,
Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan.”
