It is better to gain honour at the cost of losing power than otherwise – Goodluck



Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has urged politicians to pursue honour at the detriment of power.

The 2015 PDP presidential candidate said “Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any citizen” adding that his decision to concede defeat in 2015 brought peace to himself and the entire country.

The former president made this known on Friday via a post on his verified Facebook page.

Recall that Jonathan got global attention in 2015 after conceding defeat at the presidential poll which he lost to the current president, Muhammadu Buhari.

He urged leaders facing election challenges to adopt his philosophy and gain honour.

He wrote: “Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any citizen. It is better to gain honour at the cost of losing power, than to gain power at the cost of losing honour.

“At any point in time, the power of love should matter more than the love of power. This is my philosophy. I have lived it. It has brought great peace to both my beloved nation and I.

“And I recommend it to all leaders facing challenging situations, either in government, or at the polls, or even in their dealings with fellow political actors”.
