Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, says it is better to lose power and gain honour. The former President announced this on Friday in a Facebook post.

He wrote “Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any citizen. It is better to gain honour at the cost of losing power than to gain power at the cost of losing honour.
