Jonathan dedicates African Sun Award to Nigerians
By; Jacob Onjewu Dickson.
 Former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has dedicated the award by the African Sun Times to the Nigerian people for putting doomsday prophets to shame.
 
He made the dedication in a message acknowledging the prestigious award, where he was named the International Person of the Year by the African Sun.
“I thank The African Sun Times for naming me as its International Person of the year, 2015. I am indeed humbled by this honour. When I think about it, I understand why this medium may have thought me worthy of such an honour.
“However, I believe that my people, the Nigerian people, are more deserving of this honour. We, the Nigerian people put to shame naysayers and prophets of doom and in 2015, we held most transparent, violence free and credible elections that transferred power from one political party to another and from an incumbent to the opposition, without rancour, bitterness or strife,” he said.
He explained that he was able to keep to his words that his ambitions were not worth the blood of any Nigerian.
“In the process, we proved that nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian or any national of any country for that matter. That to me, is a most worthy testimonial of the character of the Nigerian nation and the resilience of our people which is why I dedicate this honour to them. May God continue to bless Nigeria and Nigerians,” he concluded.
