Civil war would have ended ealier if Ojukwu had acted like Jonathan - Danjuma

Today, President Jonathan paid a private visit to former Minister of Defense, General Theophilus Danjuma at his home to discuss on ways to have a smooth transition of power on May 29th.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, Danjuma said president Jonathan has set a record in the history of the country by conceding defeat. He said if former Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu had behaved like Jonathan by conceding defeat, the civil war would have been avoided.
"The outcome of the election and the manner in which President Jonathan conceded victory to Buhari, is total un-African, it is very important in the history of Africa. Ojukwu did the same after the fall of Enugu, if he had conceded victory to the federal troops he would have saved the nation one full year of bloodshed. President Jonathan has set a record, made history, something to be emulated by the rest of Africa and indeed the whole world.” He said (Source - Vanguard)
