Jonathan arrives South Africa to monitor general elections.
Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is currently in Johannesburg, South Africa, with other African observers to monitor the country’s national and provincial elections.
This is coming barely a year after the former president led foreign observers to monitor elections in Sierra-Leone.
Jonathan, on his Facebook page, wrote: “I arrived in Johannesburg early this morning to lead the Election Observation Mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa to South Africa’s national and provincial elections.
“Democracy has indeed turned the corner in Africa with many nations holding periodic and peaceful elections which put in the hands of the people the power to choose their leaders,” Jonathan said
The former President, who has been celebrated around the world for conceding defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari after the 2015 Presidential election, has become an elder state man and an advocate for sustainable democracy in Africa.
