Former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has been selected for honour by the Diplomatic Circles in Geneva, Switzerland, following his democratic credentials and for “upholding human rights in Africa”.

The event which will take place on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at the group’s annual dinner in Geneva, Switzerland, will see the former leader become the first African President to be so honoured by the body.

The Diplomatic Circles, which is a group of diplomats globally, have also scheduled Dr. Jonathan to deliver a keynote address at the event.

Earlier in the year, a public policy organisation on African affairs, the Africa Political and Economic Strategic Center (AFRIPOL) had also nominated Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for the Nobel Peace Prize.
