How Goodluck Jonathan Got “Presidential Jet” for Special Peacekeeping Mission





It has being reported that Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan who left office in 2015 and being appointed as  ambassador for peace and democracy in Africa   has arrived in Bamako, Mali for a special peacekeeping mission.

His appointment as an ambassador for peace  was due to the fact that he peacefully conceded defeat to President Muhammad Buhari in 2015.

As a special envoy, Economic Council of West African States (ECOWAS) has appointed Goodluck Jonathan, to lead a special envoy to resolve the ongoing conflict in Mali.

 It has being disclosed that Jonathan and his team have landed in the troubled Nation on Thursday morning in a presidential aircraft belonging to President Muhammad Buhari.

Goodluck Jonathan and his team members will be facilitating and mediating in the troubled nation by meeting the Malian President, the opposition leaders, religious and traditional leaders in order to find a lasting solution to the conflict which has being going on since March.

It was said that the crisis started in March and April immediately after the parliamentary elections.

Following this, thousands of protesters hit the streets calling for the removal of their leaders due to the mishandling of the Insurgency and appalling state of the country's economy.

Jonathan had earlier thanks Buhari for supporting him with the aircraft and other logistics needed for the success of the special mission.

His post on his Twitter handle:

"I arrived Bamako Wednesday evening with my delegation to begin my assignment as leader of @ecowas_cedeao peace mission to Mali. I'm optimistic that our mission will yield positive results. Our message of peace and progress has so far been well received by the nation president."

The former president has gone for many peacekeeping missions and election monitoring assignments since he left office.
