Civil War would have ended ealier if Ojukwu had acted like Jonathan – Danjuma

By Ben Agande

Abuja – Former Minister of Defense, General Theophilus Danjuma, Wednesday, said that if former Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu had behaved like President Jonathan by conceding defeat, the civil war would have been avoided.

Speaking shortly after a closed door meeting with President Jonathan, General Danjuma said the president has set a record in the history of the country by his act.

The meeting between Jonathan and General Danjuma was held behind closed door at General Danjuma’s residence in Asokoro.

According to General Danjuma, if Ojukwu had done the same thing after the fall of Enugu, when his government had to flee into the bush, he would have saved the country from bloodshed.

“The outcome of the election and the manner in which President Jonathan conceded victory to Buhari, is total un-African, it is very important in the history of Africa.

“Ojukwu did the same after the fall of Enugu, if he had conceded victory to the federal troops he would have saved the nation one full year of bloodshed.
