Nigerian Election Sets Standard For African Leaders – Pres. Sirleaf

MONROVIA, April 3 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has observed that the holding of free, fair and democratic elections in Nigeria sets a standard for other African countries, including Liberia, and gives new direction for all leaders in Africa to emulate.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, President Sirleaf’s statement was contained in a message to her Nigerian counterpart, outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan.

She said the Nigerian election marks a critical victory for democracy in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

The Liberia leader said the outcome of the elections is a clear manifestation of President Jonathan’s strong commitment to democratic values and principles, which he has personally nurtured for many years as President of Nigeria.

She said the show of tolerance and patriotism by President Jonathan during the elections brings pride not only to the people of Nigeria but to the entire continent of Africa.

The Liberian Chief Executive stated that Jonathan will forever be remembered not only as a good leader, but also as a nationalist who placed the stability and future of his country above all personal interests.  

She assured President Jonathan of the continued goodwill of the Liberian people as he transitions to another phase in his personal life and prayed that the Almighty God will continue to endow him with abundant wisdom and strength.
