He however , condemned what he described as “the senseless killing and maiming of innocent Nigerians by uninformed minds,” adding that ?the post-election violence ?witnessed in parts of the country recently was unnecessary.

??”We should all rise to condemn the violence in the northern part of the country. As Nigerians, all of us need to congratulate ourselves on the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan.?It portends that the nation has developed politically and that there is hope for an average Nigerian to get to the top.

” The victory is not for Mr. President alone, God only used him as a symbol of unity and we should be proud of the development,” he said.
