Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan has advised to all leaders, saying “it is better to lose power and gain honour”.
Jonathan in his message on his official Facebook page on Friday recommended the ‘philosophy’ to all leaders facing ‘challenging situations at the polls’.
He said: “Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any citizen. It is better to gain honour at the cost of losing power than to gain power at the cost of losing honour.
“At any point in time, the power of love should matter more than the love of power.
“This is my philosophy. I have lived it. It has brought great peace to both my beloved nation and I. And I recommend it to all leaders facing challenging situations, either in government, or at the polls, or even in their dealings with fellow political actors,” he said.
