In March 2015, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan made one of those courageous and insightful decisions when he stepped forward to acknowledge he had lost his re-election bid. Through that single stroke, President Jonathan raised the bar on office holders in his country and across Africa. This publication is a compilation of President Goodluck Jonathan’s leadership prowess at the helm. It is also a vivid testimony of yet another real life lesson to office holders across this continent of budding democracies-there is life after state House!

President Jonathan did the Unthinkable in 2015 – he called the opposition candidate to concede an election whose final results had not been announced. He had the capacity to foment trouble., for whatever reason, but chose the path of peace. In this book, he has, in his characteristic simplicity, told a compelling story of his five-year tenure, including his footprints in various sectors of the economy. It is the story of pains and gains, tenacity in the face of adversity, and grass and grace. This undroppable book delivers inspiration from chapter to chapter.
