Former President, Dr Goodluck Jonathanâ€™s well decorated hat is poised to receive another feather with the African Ambassdorsâ€™ Forum honouring him with the prize of the African Leadership and Achievement Awards (ALAA) for his outstanding statesmanship general elections in Nigeria.
His successor in office, President
Muhammadu Buhari, will also be decorated for his tenacity in running for office for a record four times, thereby deepening the nationâ€™s democratic process.
He will be sharing this prize with former president of Ghana Mr. John Mahama and the ECOWAS Commission for institutional leadership.
A statement signed by the Chairman and Secretary of the International Selection Committee and the advisory board of the African Third Sector Resource Ambassador Edward Aina and Chijioke James, who are the organizers of the sixth African Ambassadors Interactive Forum (AAIF) said further that the theme of this yearâ€™s edition of the forum â€˜Deepening Democracy and Ensuring Human Security in Africa,â€™ is a key factor to Africaâ€™s economic growth and development.
The highlight of this year forum coming up on October 17, 2017 by 5p.m. at the Abuja International Conference Centre is the advisory board and international selection committee identification and acknowledgement of the institutional and individual leadership role that has in no small measure helped in the process of deepening democracy in Africa.
