Former President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the attempted coup to unseat the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed.
Reacting to the failed coup which claimed the life of the nation’s chief of army by his own bodyguard, Jonathan said his heart bleeds when there is unnecessary and avoidable bloodshed.
While condemning the incident which took place in Ethiopia on Sunday, he said; “Nobody’s Political Ambition Is Worth The Blood of Citizens in Ethiopia or Any Other Nation.
“I have long said, believed and practised the principle that nobody’s political ambition is worth the blood of any citizen.
“As such, it bleeds my heart when there is unnecessary and avoidable bloodshed, as has just happened in Ethiopia.
“I condemn the attempted coup against the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
“I go further to call on men and women of goodwill around the world to also condemn such anti-democratic actions and show solidarity to the democratically elected constitutional order in Ethiopia.
“Democracy has come to rest in Africa. Constitutionality and the rule of law are what we in Africa need, especially in the cradle of civilisation and the melting pot of the African Union.
“Africa hopes for a speedy return to normalcy and I stand ready to lend my voice and actions to make that possible. May God bless Africa and may He be with the government and people of Ethiopia at such a trying time.
Nobody’s Political Ambition Is Worth The Blood of Citizens in Ethiopia or Any Other Nation.
