Namadi Sambo, former vice president, said he has no regrets serving Nigeria as her vice-president under the Goodluck Jonathan's administration rather than thanking God for giving him the opportunity to serve the country in the exalted position.
The Punch reports that Sambo made this known on Sunday, September 23, while paying a condolence visit to the Toru-Orua country home of Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson, who lost his mother recently.
The former vice president, who said he had just been appointed an active Ambassador by Afrexim Bank and the African Union, for an intra-African trade fair in Cairo, Egypt, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to do the right thing in the forthcoming election of 2019.

“First and foremost, I am here to condole with my brother and sister on the loss of our mother and we pray that Almighty God will grant the family the fortitude to bear the great loss.
