A political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has described the United Nations’ appointment of former President Goodluck Jonathan as one of its envoys as the rewards for leaving behind a legacy of peace in Nigeria.
The United Nations (UN) Monday announced the appointment of Nigeria’s ex-President as its Special Envoy on Crisis Management. UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterre made the announcement.
But reacting to the appointment through a statement Tuesday in Abuja to congratulate the former President Goodluck Jonathan, Frank said “GEJ’s uncommon trait of leadership in Africa and beyond is an asset to the whole world.
“We will be praying to God to give Goodluck Jonathan wisdom, knowledge and understanding to manage this honour as the first African to hold this position.
“Jonathan’s love for humanity is a virtue every living being must imbibe. His humility, through the grace of God is beyond ordinary. Though being vilified at home by some elements of darkness but International community, where things work daily recognise him. A big congratulations to a peaceful leader,” Frank said.
The political activist also commended the United Nations for the honour done to Nigeria’s ex-President, saying “the body should not also fail to reward bad leaders for their contributions to humanity as well.”
