Former President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria is a famous politician appraised across West Africa due to his outstanding record in the 2015 presidential election in the country.

Jonathan conceded defeat and congratulated his closest rival Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) even before INEC’s final announcement of the result of the 2015 Presidential bid, among others made the former President stand out in the comity of the nation.

Before this, the ad-hoc mediation committee set up by the ECOWAS Parliament deems it fit to have a closed session with the nation’s father of democracy as fondly described by political analysts, to wrap up its consultation with relevant stakeholders on Niger’s political situation.

The meeting was held behind closed doors on Monday, September 4, 2023, at the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, located in the highbrow Maitama area of Abuja.

Aimed at inquiring how best to tackle the Niger crisis based on his vast knowledge of peace and diplomacy missions he has led in Africa, and on the continent.

Although there was no official statement for the three-hour meeting held at former President Jonathan’s Foundation.

However, all eyes are on the committee to come up with a workable solution considering the highly proffer personalities they’ve engaged since the commencement of the consultation.

Recall that the military junta in Niger Republic had on July 26, overthrown the democratically elected government of President Mohamed Bazoum.

Prompting this mediation process to tackle the political downturn better, and diplomatically.
