THE United Nations Ambassador on Millennium Development Goals, Karo Ekewenu, has commended the sportsmanship displayed by President Goodluck Jonathan in the just concluded Presidential election, saying he is the number one agent of change in Nigeria.

Ekewenu said, “President Jonathan’s name would go down in history as the most democratic president Nigeria has ever had.

“I am still amazed at the level of independence the INEC has had in conducting and collating the election and its results. Certainly, I am proud of President Goodluck Jonathan.  I am proud of him as a true diplomat.”

He added: “I am happy also that Mr. President conceded. It’s a sign of unity and greater things to come ahead for this nation.

“I love my country and want the best just as others do, so we all won as long as our ideologies are never at loggerheads with the path of peace, equity and justice for our dear nation”.

Ekewenu prayed God to grant General Muhammadu Buhari the wisdom and courage to pilot the affairs of Nigeria aright, adding that the President-elect “must continue with the good legacy laid down by our beloved President”.
