Jonathan tipped for AU special envoy on peaceful transitions
President of Igbo Democratic Forum (IDF) and Co-Chairman, Nigerians Living Outside Their Home States (NILOTHS), Chief Chidi Ndu, has called on the African Union (AU) to appoint former President Goodluck Jonathan as Special Envoy on Peaceful Transitions in Africa to guard against military coups.
Ndu, in a statement, yesterday, in Jos, Plateau State, decried the resurgence of military coups in the continent as retrogressive for democracy.
According to the IDF president, Africa cannot be allowed to descend to autocratic rule while other nations are moving ahead, adding that the only way sit-tight leaders can be encouraged to leave the stage is to appoint a well-respected leader, a symbol of democracy and peaceful transition, to go round and talk to such leaders.
