UN Appointment Of Former President Jonathan: Reward For Leaving Behind A Legacy Of Peace In Nigeria 

Comrade Timi Frank, political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has described the United Nations appointment of former President Goodluck Jonathan as one of the rewards for leaving behind a legacy of peace in Nigeria.

Frank, who charged President Muhammadu Bubari to think of the kind of legacies he would leave behind at the expiration of his tenure, adding that International Criminal Court (ICC) is no respecter of any president.

He said that the United Nations (UN) on Monday announced the appointment of Jonathan as its special envoy on crisis management. UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterre made the announcement.

While reacting to the appointment in a statement made  available to journalists on Tuesday, the activist congratulated Jonathan, pointing out that his uncommon trait of leadership in Africa and beyond was an asset to the 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 stated.

Frank, while recalling Jonathan’s on 2015 said, ‘If I lose this election, of course I will go back to my village. The country is not my father’s estate, My ambition is not worth the blood of any Nigerian,’ and ‘Let nobody rig for me,’ among others will forever differentiate Jonathan from the current General Buhari.

“In 2019 presidential election, when General Buhari was asked whether he will congratulate the winner if he loses the election, he (Buhari) simply said he would congratulate himself. That is desperation of the highest order.”
