Trump's victory: Stop protesting - Jonathan tells Americans
Former Nigeria’s president Goodluck Jonathan has appealed to Americans to give peace a chance following multiple protests in cities across the country over Donald Trump's emergence as its 45th president.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Mr. Jonathan said democracy is all about accommodation.
He wrote: "I appeal to Americans who are protesting on the streets after the emergence of Donald J. Trump as President-elect to give peace a chance. Democracy is all about accommodation and the United States is a model for the free world."
"All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product."
"While exercising their rights, I plead with the Great American people not to do anything that will impinge on the old and cherished values and traditions of the US on democratic ethos. GEJ."
