Former Secretary-General, Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding victory to the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the presidential election of Saturday, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari.
Anyaoku, in a short statement, said, “I’ll commend the president for this statesman gesture. This, I believe, has set the stage for peaceful reactions. He had demonstrated an uncommon grace. He has done the country well, he has made us proud.
“I believe the election is one of the best ever had in recent times. It shows that our democracy is taking roots. I’m hopeful that future elections will be well run.”
