“My ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian,” – Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.

The most selfless statement I have ever heard from a Nigerian politician in my years of existence.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please give it up for the man who transformed the economy of Nigeria to become one of the fastest growing in the world.

The man who was accused of corrupt practices, yet his policies is the template for those who accused him.
