Former President Goodluck Jonathan has engraved his name in Africa’s book of first, as he will be honoured on January 21, 2016, at the yearly Dinner Gala night of Diplomatic Circlers in Geneva, Switzerland.

He is the first African leader in and out of office to be so honoured by this revered group for his democratic credentials and upholding human rights.

The Diplomatic Circle is a group of diplomats from all over the world. The former President, who will also be the guest of honour, is to deliver a keynote address.

This goes to show that he had become not just a national asset to Nigeria, but also to Africa and global community.

Since he conceded defeat at the last presidential election and congratulated the winner, Dr. Jonathan’s image had continued soar and seen as a reference and a   model for other African leaders.
