Jonathan became the president of Nigeria in 2009 after the death of his principal late President Musa Yaradua. They both ran on a joint ticket during the 2007 presidential election in Nigeria and Jonathan completed their four-year tenure. In 2011, Jonathan ran officially for the office of the president and he was democratically elected after winning the majority votes in the 2011 presidential election.

After his first tenure, he tried to run for his second tenure and was defeated by former President Muhammad Buhari of the All Progressive Congress ( APC). His ability to accept defeat in the election by calling his opponent to congratulate him even before INEC official announcement of the winner earned him the Ambassador of peace and a lover of democracy. He gained international recognition and fame after showing that his ambition wasn’t worth the blood of any Nigerian.
