Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has been appointed Chairman of the International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP)-Africa.
ISCP-Africa is a group of current and former heads of state, as well as their deputies.
It was founded in 2019 by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), a United Nations organisation with general consultative status (UN).
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Jonathan on his new position.
The party’s message of congratulations was contained in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Thursday in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said the appointment was in recognition of his leadership qualities as a democrat as well as his resounding success in peacekeeping efforts across the world.
“Our party is assured that former President Jonathan will deploy his wealth of experience strengthened by the democratic tenets and principles of our great party, in his new mandate of providing direction for the essentials of peace, security and development in Africa.
“The party also congratulates ex-President Jonathan on his appointment as the Chancellor of Cavendish University, Uganda (CUU).
“The PDP is elated that former President Jonathan is so honoured to hold the position previously held by late President Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia as well as late President Benjamin Mkapa of the Republic of Tanzania, because of his commitment to education and human capital development, in line with the ideals of the PDP,” he said.
