Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by the Africa Political and Economic Strategic Center (AFRIPOL), a public policy organisation on African affairs according to several media reports.
AFRIPOL stated that the founder of the Nobel Prize, Alfred Nobel’s goal was to award the noble prize to deserving recipient and whomever “have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
The organisation further stated that the ‘peaceful way President Jonathan conceded to President-elect Buhari deserves the attention of Nobel Peace Prize committee. He may have not promoted “fraternity between nations” but he surely promoted fraternal peace among Nigerians by conceding power.’
The group further stated that the ‘concession speech by President Jonathan averted bloodshed, violence and imbroglio in the most populous country in Africa. This gesture by Jonathan buttressed to the whole world that Nigeria has joined the comity of civilized nations.’
