Ini Edo Praises Buhari, Hails Jonathan's Sportsmanship
The emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria's president-elect has been welcomed by many people across the globe.
Also, the acceptance of the outcome of the presidential election by President Goodluck Jonathan has been hailed by many people, who have described Jonathan as a man of integrity and honour.
One of those who have sent congratulatory messages to Buhari is sultry actress, Ini Edo.
There is no doubt that Nigerian President has supported the creative industry in the country more than any other leader and it was not a surprise to many political observers that entertainers rallied round him during the campaign.
In her message to Jonathan, Ini Edo said, “My President, you are indeed a great man, a man of honour, dedication and Integrity. Your kind nature will be missed by all Nigerians. You allowed peace throughout this election and made us as a nation understand that there's no alternative to peace.
“You showed interest in an industry no other Nigerian President did; entertainment! You contributed to giving us a voice. You helped us grow! If only for this reason sir, I remain eternally grateful.
“Nigerians have spoken and as the great man that you are again you have heard. God bless you Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. May your days be long and may you be granted your hearts desires.”
Hailing Buhari, the actress said, “Nigeria has decided. Congratulations Rtd Gen Mohammed Buhari, President elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I also congratulate Nigeria on the peace shown throughout this election.
“I had supported President Jonathan but Your voices have been heard and your votes counted. Nigeria is about to embark on a new journey and my prayer is for Nigeria to continue to stand as one nation in peace and harmony. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
