Former Aviation Minister,  Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has said that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) showed “maturity” by visiting former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Sharing photos of Tuesday night’s meeting between Jonathan and a Tinubu-led team on Facebook, the ex-minister noted that it showed that the former president practises politics without bitterness.

“I have always known and believed that President Goodluck Jonathan is one of the most civilised, compassionate, capable and humane leaders that this country has ever known. I believed it in 2015 and I still believe it today.

“I am delighted that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Sen. Kashim Shettima, the flagbearers of our great party the APC for next years presidential election and our incoming President and Vice President respectively, had the presence of mind, maturity, decency and humility to honor him with a visit yesterday in order to brief him about their efforts and plans for our collective future as a nation and to pay their respects.

“I am also moved and touched by the fact that, despite all the differences and challenges of the past, President Jonathan received them so warmly and with such respect and joy.

“This is a clear case of politics without bitterness and it portends great things for the future of our country.

“What BAT (,Bola Ahmed Tinubu) and GEJ (Goodluck Ebele Jonathan) did yesterday was to prove to the world that they both have class and show what true leadership is all about.

“I thank God for their exemplary behaviour, inspiring leadership and respective lives,” he said.
