A non-governmental organisation known as Sunday Bala-Oma Foundation has called on all Nigerians and lovers of democracy to tag the 31st of March every year as Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ) Day of Peace.
The NGO says that the date being the day GEJ made a phone call to President Muhammadu Buhari and congratulated him for his victory in the 2015 presidents election is crucial to the peace and survival of the country.
Executive Director of the foundation, Mr. Sunday Bala-Oma, in a press statement in Jos yesterday said, “The action of the former president in making that call to President Buhari on that great day last year, remained the single action that made Nigerians defeat all prophesies of doom and disunity that characterized the build up the the 2015 general elections.”
According to him, “My foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization established to advocate for good governance and qualitative education for sustainable development and has volunteered to spearhead the campaign to celebrate the date due to its significance in the promotion of democracy in Nigeria and Africa.
He said, “The nature and philosophy of the person of GEJ is the kind of leader that is in short supply in Africa, the man chose to promote democracy at a time he was under pressure by some Nigerians advising him to annul the election.
