Former President Goodluck Jonathan has arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa, as the head of election observers to monitor the South African national and provincial elections.
His arrival was confirmed on his Facebook page.
This comes a year after he led observers to monitor elections in Sierra-Leone.
“I arrived in Johannesburg early this morning to lead the Election Observation Mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa to South Africa’s national and provincial elections,” he wrote.
“Democracy has indeed turned the corner in Africa with many nations holding periodic and peaceful elections which put in the hands of the people the power to choose their leaders.”
The former President was hailed around the world for his decision to concede defeat to President Muhammadu Buhari after the 2015 Presidential election.
