Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has explained why he conceded defeat after losing the 2015 presidential election to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jonathan said he conceded defeat because he was more interested in Nigeria than himself.

He disclosed this during an interview with Arise Television on Monday.

Jonathan noted that the situation of Buhari handing over to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu was a different situation from his time.

According to Jonathan, he handed over to a different political party unlike what is obtainable today.

He said: “The situation now is different from my time. Buhari is handing over to his own party, unlike my time when I handed over to another time.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25, general elections, Peter Obi, has said that the court will determine the legality of APC’s Bola Tinubu’s inauguration as president of the country.

Obi and the presidential candidate of the leading opposition PDP, Atiku Abubakar, are challenging Tinubu’s victory at the election petition tribunal.

Addressing newsmen after attending a wedding Fatiha at the Sultan Bello Mosque in Kaduna yesterday, Obi said there were issues with Nigerian democracy, but emphasised the importance of maintaining peace among Nigerians.

He said, “There are issues with Nigeria’s democracy, but we must live peacefully and focus on addressing the country’s challenges such as security, poverty, education, and other crucial matters that require our attention.”

On Tinubu’s inauguration today, Obi said, “Well, the court will decide. As I mentioned earlier, we must continue to pursue peace, religious harmony, ethnic harmony, and coexistence. These are the most important things at the moment.”

Omeje, however, told security agencies to allow the citizens express their feelings.

He said whereas protest was a constitutional right of the citizens, it had nothing to do with the inauguration of the Governor-elect.

Omeje, an Advocate for good governance and member of the Abuja School of Socio-Political Thought, said the swearing-in of the Governor-elect is constitutional.

He said, “protest is the fundamental right of Ndi Enugu; the right to protest is provided in the law; the people should be allowed to express themselves.

“However, such protest should not truncate the process; the courts are there for aggrieved politicians to ventilate their anger.

“Until a court of competent jurisdiction sets aside a declaration or decision of INEC, it stands.”
