Nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any citizen – Goodluck Jonathan reacts to Capitol riot

Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the riot at the Capitol building. According to him, no citizen’s live is worth anybody’s political ambition which has always been his stand.

Pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building when the US Congress was holding a joint session to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 US presidential election, after Trump instigated his supporters on a live video.

Goodluck Jonathan wrote; “I have repeatedly said nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any citizen, in any part of the world. Absolutely nobody.

“Again, I reiterate that it is better to lose power at the cost of gaining peace, than to gain power at the price of losing the peace.

“As a leader, one must not just look unto one’s own interest, but the interest and the good of society. It is never too late to reject the venom and inject the serum of peace.

“It is necessary to state that the highest purpose of leadership is to bring people together, even those that do not share in your philosophy. And you do not need an office to do that.

“All you need to achieve that height of leadership is conscience. Let us be men of conscience at this hour. GEJ.”

So far, 4 people have been reported dead and 52 arrested.
