Politics Goodluck Jonathan Receives Two More International Awards



Former President Goodluck has received two international awards by the cities of Antioch and Lathrop in California for promoting peace and democracy in Africa.

At the award ceremony held in Antioch, California, on April 23, the mayor of the city of Antioch, Mayor Wade Harper, expressed his admiration for Mr. Jonathan and declared that the city of Antioch, California, was proud of his legacies, especially his act of overseeing free, fair and conclusive elections and leaving the scene when the ovation was loudest.

He recommended Mr. Jonathan’s behaviour to other leaders.


Mr. Jonathan, who was represented by his former aide, Reno Omokri, gave a goodwill message to the two cities that had gathered to honour him as well as to the Nigerian community in the Bay Area of California.

Mr. Jonathan said he was “proud of Nigerians in the diaspora and more so of Nigerians in the US and even more so of the Nigerian diaspora in California.”
