The Kinsmen of President Goodluck Jonathan have commended him for conducting a credible and acceptable Presidential Election.

Mr. Endurance Osain, a relative of the President said on Wednesday that the peaceful conduct of the election on Saturday was commendable

Osain, who spoke on the feelings of the President’s kinsmen in Otuoke, noted that the election was credible despite the minor hitches associated with the card readers.

He lauded President Jonathan for conducting an internationally acceptable free and fair poll by supporting the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Osain said the people of Otuoke are happy with the way Jonathan conducted the election, saying that democracy has prevailed in Nigeria.

He said the people of Otuoke and Ogbia kingdom are ready to welcome Jonathan home despite his loss to Muhammadu Buhari.

Osain also urged the people of Bayelsa not to see the results of the election as a failure but should see Jonathan as a true democrat that Nigeria will ever remember.

Some ex-militants currently enjoying the amnesty programme slated to lapse in 2015 described the loss as a major setback to the region.

Joe Tabiri, an ex-militant leader said that the re-election of Jonathan would have ensured the sustenance of the amnesty programme.

“Our calculation was that a second term for Jonathan would have ensured that the amnesty is sustained, but the results we saw dashed that hope. We did not expect him to lose.

“We need to do a reassessment of the options open to us and take a stand,” he said.
