The Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has advises the Donald Trump, the US president to secede to Biden, noting that his ambition is not worth the blood of any American citizen
Jonathan said this on Facebook page a day after pro-Trump supporters disrupted the ratification of Joe Biden’s victory.
He said it is not too late to reject the venom and allow the wish of the people to be done for the sake of peace.
Recall, On Wednesday, hundreds of Republicans stormed the US Capitol just as lawmakers were certifying the outcome of the recent presidential election in which Biden defeated Trump.
Reacting, Jonathan wrote: “I have repeatedly said nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any citizen, in any part of the world. Absolutely nobody.
“Again, I reiterate that it is better to lose power at the cost of gaining peace, than to gain power at the price of losing the peace. As a leader, one must not just look unto one’s own interest, but the interest and the good of society. It is never too late to reject the venom and inject the serum of peace.
“It is necessary to state that the highest purpose of leadership is to bring people together, even those that do not share in your philosophy. And you do not need an office to do that.”
“Let us be men of conscience at this hour,” Jonathan added.
