PDP Reacts As Jonathan Gets International Appointment

Goodluck Jonathan, the former President of Nigeria, has been appointed Director of the International Summit Council for Peace (ISCP)-Africa.

ISCP-Africa is a group of current and former presidents of state and their deputies that was founded in 2019 by the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), a United Nations organization with general consultative status (UN).

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) reacted by congratulating Jonathan on his new position.

Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, issued a statement in Abuja on Thursday with the party’s congratulations.

The designation, according to Ologbondiyan, was made in honor of his democratic leadership characteristics as well as his overwhelming success in peacekeeping efforts around 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.

Ologbondiyan urged Jonathan to use the positions to further the advancement of peace and development in Africa and the world at large.
