    Thank God for a peaceful presidential election, President Goodluck Jonathan is an exemplary leader and not a do-and-die politician. We have lessons to learn from GEJ and Buhari the winner after many attempts, big congratulation to GMB the president-elect and all Nigerians for their mature conduct which must also be displayed on 11/4/2015 election.
