I Will Not Allow EFCC Invite Goodluck Jonathan, His Call Immediately I Won The Election Was A Respect – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally
ruled-out possibility of inviting ex-President
Goodluck Jonathan for questioning over cases
of corruptions, most especially, the popular
Armsgate scandal during his administration,
saying the ex-President has earned respect
world-over for a singular act after 2015
Buhari who said he was shocked to have
receive Jonathan’s call even before the
presidential election result was declared
also said such incidence in his life remain
Reacting to questions when some
journalists interview the President during
the week, Buhari revealed that he remains
grateful to the former President.

Hear him:-

“I think is one of the incidences in my
life that I will never forget, I could even
remember the time, it is quarter past five
in the evening. He call me, of course we
recognize each other voices. He said,
good evening Your Excellency and I say
ha Good evening Your Excellency and
then a temporary silence from both sides
then I heard I am calling you to
congratulate you that I have conceded,
that you have won the election and

“And now of course, there was absolute
silence from my own side, because I
haven’t recovered from the shock,
because the reality of the situation is for
somebody who have been a deputy
governor, a governor, a vice president
and then a president suddenly for six
years to concede during election even
before the counting was completed I
think he shows some great statesmanship.
“So quickly, that is why I changed my
mind I said Your Excellency, he said do
you hear what I said thank you Your
Excellency for your statesmanship. I
think if you play back because it was
recorded that is how I quickly came out
of it.
“And certainly for that he earned the
respect not only of Nigerians, but the
world over, because in the state of our
development political, when change of
government is done through the barrel of
the gun. Then a substantive seating
President conceding before even the
figures are been collated[b].”[i]
