Erstwhile President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the May 29 inaugural speech by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking all the way from Yenagoa, Bayelsa state, on May 30, 2015, Saturday, the ex-Ruler lauded President Buhari for pledging allegiance to all in his inaugural speech, adding that the president’s comportment thrilled him.
“Buhari said that he does not belong to any clique, and I congratulate him for that statement.
“It shows that we should all rally around him to work towards the development of the country and make Nigerians happy,” Jonathan said.
The Bayelsa chairman of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Tari Dounana, also delivered his own opinion on Buhari’s inaugural speech.
He said: “The president said that he belonged to everyone and to nobody. That is the kind of words we want from a leader. Thank God Nigeria’s democracy is advancing and we have gotten a leader that will take the issues of workers very seriously.”
