Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau and chairman of the forum in a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Makut Macham on Friday in Jos, described the celebrant as a true democrat.

He said Mr Jonathan’s passion for the growth of democracy was reflected not only in his records in office, but also in his current international engagements, saying “he has successfully monitored elections in many countries and has also engaged with stakeholders.”

The chairman commended the former president for his patriotism and dedication to the unity, peace and development of Nigeria as well as offering counsel on various national issues.

He endeared himself to the global community when, as an incumbent, in 2015, he conceded defeat, before the final tabulation of results, to President Muhammadu Buhari in a keenly contested presidential poll.
