Jonathan said the peaceful nature of the election would surprise the world.
The President spoke on Thursday evening when members of the Diplomatic Corps, some senators, ministers and former government officials joined him for the breaking of Ramadan fast at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. He said:
“I know that one thing that is dear to your hearts is what the elections in this country will look like next year.
But let me use this unique opportunity to reassure you and I am conveying this to my brothers, your heads of government, that our elections next year will be free and fair. It will be peaceful in nature that will even surprise the whole world.”
