Donald Trump’s Victory: Give Peace a Chance – Goodluck Jonathan tells Protesters



Goodluck Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan

Nigeria’s former president, Goodluck Jonathan, has called for peace in the United States of America following multiple protests in cities across the country over Donald Trump‘s emergence as its 45th president.

Jonathan made this known in a Facebook post on Friday. The former president said:

I appeal to Americans who are protesting on the streets after the emergence of Donald J. Trump as President-elect to give peace a chance. Democracy is all about accommodation and the United States is a model for the free world.

All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product.

While exercising their rights, I plead with the Great American people not to do anything that will impinge on the old and cherished values and traditions of the US on democratic ethos.

    If there is one thing the US election has taught us, it is that voters are human whether they live in the US or in Nigeria, that there are divisions in societies across the world – ethnoreligious in Nigeria and along liberal/conservative lines in the United States, and that lessons on tolerance and dialogue are transferable – from the United States to Nigeria, and yes the other way around too. GEJ please tell them to calm down and give the transition a chance – after all they have been peddling democracy, including peaceful transitions, around the world.

      Thanks Deb. I think GEJ more than anyone in Nigeria (side eye to Buhari of the baboon and blood BS) has earned the right to say what he has said.

      Can people pass their messages with respect ?
      I don’t think so …..
      Because they know they can back their talks with intelligent facts.
      Since you have chosen to be rude I shall not be educating you.

    This man should not annoy me o! See him roaming freely and talking when everyday I’m hearing about all the billions they stole. Meanwhile people’s children have not resumed school for the term. Just looking at him is making my blood boil.

    Lol, messed up we may be, but there’s something perversely delicious about a former Nigerian president counselling Americans about peaceful voting.

    Well said. Americans should accept the result of the election. Nobody believed that Trump will win over Clinton but this shows that the ways of man is not the ways of God. When the the Democrats signed the LGBT into law, that was when the glory of God departed from them. This is to show everyone that, there is power but God’s power is mightier!

      re: homosexuality – Live and Let Live Dear. You are not God, so you have no say in why the Creator created such natural diversity. Everyone counts and has a right to a quality of Life, Straight or Gay. 2 consenting adults – Its not your business nor concern. Learn to tolerate difference.

      Oh shutup! Like your sin laden country is any better because you have an anti gay law. You all who never hesitate to spew your anti gay rhetoric everywhere need to stop cherry picking the bible and keep God out of your foul mouths. Bloody hypocrites.

      @ Yemite, I like your I don’t care attitude and the thick skin you have shown here. Some lesser being would have been bullied off BN. Well done Mr/Miss Yemite.

    Is Jonathan really being celebrated here? Because he left office when he lost an election? The same guy who is now a billionaire because he rused Nigeria? God help that country if this is what we celebrate
