Founder of the Silverbird Group and Senator-elect Ben Murray-Bruce has disclosed that President Goodluck Jonathan was very calm on the fateful day he conceded defeat to President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari.
Ben Murray-Bruce disclosed this while speaking with ThisDay yesterday through a phone interview.
I was not there [when Jonathan placed a call to General Buhari] but I was in his company twice that day once in his office and then at home. He was in good spirits, he was very calm. He was smiling, looking around and in a cheerful mood. Some people were stunned at this man who had just lost an election for the highest office in the land and was smiling and cheering everyone. I took a walk with him round the building and I could see the zebras, the giraffes, the same animals that were there when President Obasanjo and I walked round the fence several times.
Ben Murray-Bruce also disclosed to ThisDay that President Jonathan is “well disposed to General Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu” and predicted that Jonathan will give his greatest support to the incoming administration. He also debunked the rumours that Goodluck Jonathan had a drinking problem, claiming that he has never seen the outgoing president drinking.
