President Buhari who hosted members of the Kannywood entertainment industry to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, revealed he would continue to hold former president Goodluck Jonathan in high esteem for conceding the 2015 presidential election without any fight.
President Buhari who also stated that he will end the scourge of Boko Haram sect soon, said;
“I’ll continue to hold former president Jonathan in high esteem as a result of that singular act. He (Jonathan) was in power as Deputy Governor, Governor (Bayelsa), Vice-President and President, all for about 10 years and he voluntarily accepted defeat and surrendered power to me,’’ he said.
“It’s totally wrong for any believer in God to kill innocent people either in the Mosque, Church or the market place. You can’t be shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great), Allahu Akbar, and killing innocent citizens and destroying properties all in the name of God. It is either you don’t know what you are saying or you don’t even believe in the existence of God Almighty. God has nothing to do with injustice. So, now we are confronting them and by the grace of God we will destroy them.’’
Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha who also spoke at the event, also disclosed that President Buhari had been guaranteed at least five million votes in the 2019 presidential election by the fans and followers of the entertainers.
