Speaking to newsmen in Sapele, Dafinone also praised Jonathan for conceding victory to Buhari, noting that that singular action sent a message to the international community that Nigerians can manage their affairs without resorting to violence.

Dafinone assured that Buhari would be President of the entire Nigeria and not just members of APC.

He insisted that the President-elect would take Nigeria to new heights by promoting peace and security in the country. The founder of the Dafinone Foundation commended Jonathan for being a hero in defeat, adding that when the history of Nigeria is written, his name will be etched in gold as a man who saved Nigeria from the danger of an imminent civil war and disintegration as envisaged by doomsday prophets.
