Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has labeled former President, Goodluck Jonathan as the true hero of democracy in handing over power peacefully during his reign.
Atiku said this on Wednesday when he visited the former governor of Bayelsa State in his home town Otuoke.
He said Nigerians and the government of today should hold Jonathan in high esteem for sustaining the nation’s democracy.
“I want to say without equivocation that history will be very kind to you. As the democrat that I have always been, I want to say you have truly excelled. If you did not excel as a democrat par excellence, I wonder what the situation in Nigeria would be today,” Abubakar said.
