Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday said he is ready to concede defeat if he loses in the February 14 presidential election, reports Punch.

Jonathan was reacting to threat by some ex-leaders of Niger Delta militants, including Tompolo and Dokubo-Asari, that there would be war if Jonathan is not re-elected to serve his second term.
