Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been appointed Chairman of the International Peace Summit Council (ISCP) -Africa.
ISCP-Africa is an association of outgoing and former heads of state and their deputies, created in 2019 by the Federation for Universal Peace (UPF), an organization in general consultative status with the United Nations (UN).
Reacting, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) congratulated Jonathan on his new appointment.
The party’s congratulatory message was included in a statement released Thursday by its national publicity secretary Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said the appointment was recognition of his leadership qualities as a Democrat as well as his resounding success in peacekeeping efforts around the world.
“Our party is confident that former President Jonathan will deploy his wealth of experience, reinforced by the democratic principles and principles of our great party, in his new mandate to provide direction for the essentials of peace, security and development in Africa.
“The party also congratulates ex-President Jonathan on his appointment as Chancellor of Cavendish University, Uganda (CUU).
“The PDP is delighted that former President Jonathan is so honored to serve in the post previously held by the late President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia as well as the late President Benjamin Mkapa of the Republic of Tanzania, due to his commitment to the ‘education and development of human capital, in line with the ideals of the PDP,’ he said.
Ologbondiyan urged Jonathan to use the positions to advance peace and development in Africa and the world at large.
