Politics shouldn’t be seen as war – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has urged politicians to imbibe and promote peace, love and unity for the stability and growth of Nigeria.

Politics should not be seen as war but a process of choosing a leader, and after elections, there should be love and unity amongst all political parties, Mr Jonathan said.

The former president said this on Saturday in Yenagoa during a thanksgiving service organised by the Bayelsa Government to mark Governor Douye Diri’s one year in office.

February 14 marks Mr Diri’s one year in office as governor of Bayelsa.

Mr Jonathan said after every political process, “all should come together to give support to whoever God wanted to be there”.

He commended Mr Diri for opening his hands to other political parties in the state.

“Immediately you win an election you automatically become the governor of everyone, irrespective of party affiliation.

“There is nothing wrong for a governor or president to pick someone from another political party and make him or her minister or commissioner,” he said.
