Reaffirming his early philosophy on humanity, Jonathan said ” it bleeds my heart when there is unnecessary and avoidable bloodshed, as has just happened in Ethiopia.

Gen Seare was killed along with another general, Gezai Abera, by a bodyguard who is now in custody, the prime minister’s press office says.

Reacting to the ugly incident, Jonathan 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 Office of the Prime Minister-Ethiopia. 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.
