Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has Wednesday, described former President Goodluck Jonathan as a hero of democracy in Nigeria, and said history will be fair to him.
He made this assertion during a courtesy call on the former President at his country home in Otueke, Bayelsa State.
Atiku said Jonathan’s exemplary decision to hand over power successfully was a historic decision that portrayed him as a democrat of unimpeachable credentials.
The former Vice President said, “I want to say without equivocation that history will be very kind to you. As the democrat that I have always seen, I want to say you have truly excelled”.
Jonathan in his response commended Atiku for appointing a former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel as Director General of his Presidential Campaign Organisation.
