Former Minister of Defense, Theophilus Danjuma on Wednesday stated that if former Biafra warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu had conceded defeat early enough during the Biafran war, just like President Goodluck Jonathan did in the 2015 elections, then bloodshed could have reduced.
According to Vanguard, Danjuma stated this shortly after a closed-door meeting with Jonathan.
“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.
Reports state that Jonathan’s meeting with Danjuma was part of consultations with key stakeholders in Nigeria to facilitate a smooth power transition to president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.
