The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has hailed former President Goodluck Jonathan as an exceptional leader as he marked his 64th birthday.

A statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary on Saturday, maintained that opposition party “and indeed Nigerians, across the divides, are proud of former President Jonathan as an exceptionally patriotic leader and national icon, whose achievements and personal sacrifices towards the unity and stability of our nation remains indelible in the history of our nation.”

It added: “Over the years, as deputy governor, governor, vice president, President, African Union (AU) Envoy and Chairman, International Summit Council for Peace in Africa (ISCP-Africa), Dr. Jonathan has continued to distinguish himself as a humble, forthright, selfless and excellent administrator, who puts the interest of the people above every other consideration.

“Dr Jonathan’s efforts in entrenching democratic tenets of good governance, equity, fairness, justice, rule of law, credible elections, tolerance, mutual respect as well as accountability in governance, stabilized and strengthened the bond of unity among Nigerians during his tenure in office.

“Furthermore, Dr Jonathan’s landmark achievements including legacy projects and programmes brought unprecedented massive development and empowerment of citizens in all critical sectors, in line with the manifesto of the PDP, leading to our economy being ranked as one of the fastest-growing in the world under our party’s watch.

“Dr Jonathan’s personal sacrifices in ensuring the unity and stability of our nation, particularly after the 2015 generation election, stand him out as a statesman who put the wellbeing of the nation above personal ambitions.

“Even outside of the office, our party is proud of the role the former President Jonathan is playing in ensuring peace, unity, stability, credible elections and good governance in other parts of the world.”

The party said that it joined family members, friends, and associates in celebrating “this global citizen and we pray God will continue to bless him with many more years in good health and service to our dear nation.”
