The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has said that former president, Goodluck Jonathan is the best president Nigeria has ever had.
Mohammed stated this during the condolence visit on Friday to him by the former president over the demise of his elder brother, Alhaji Abubakar Bappa Duguri.
He insisted that the former president was selfless and had given his all to Nigeria.
He said, “You remain the best thing to have happened to this country called Nigeria. Your selfless service and sacrifice have made Nigeria greater than how you met it.
“You are part and parcel of us in Bauchi, but your position and achievements are beyond me, Bauchi State or anybody. As somebody has said, you have carved a niche for yourself as a humane and simple leader.”
He also described Jonathan as a leader who lives very well, who peacefully lives with people,
Bala stated that he deeply cherishes his relationship with Jonathan as it was responsible for bringing him to the limelight.
Bala continued: “We hardly had anything in common even at party level but because of nationality and patriotism placed in your heart and the need to create unity you made me come to national relevance and limelight.”
“With humility, through your office, we built over 10,000 millionaires in Nigeria, through your benevolence we have helped so many people, there are so many people who rose during your tenure.”
Governor Bala attributed the feat to the extension of the goodwill Jonathan had created across the board, adding, “You gave me trust and I will always remember that you did that without my input, without anyone talking to you on my behalf.”
