Former president, Goodluck Jonathan was yesterday given a presidential award in the Unted States of America by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. A delighted Jonathan also met with the sister of legendary civil right activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Here is what he wrote on his official facebook page;
“I thank Dr. Charles Steele Jr, President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, and the executive of the SCLC for honoring me today. It was also a pleasure to meet Naomi King, the sister of the late American Civil Rights leader and founder of the SCLC, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who was kind enough to attend the event and identify with the goals and aspirations of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation. By this award, I am further inspired to continue to work for the advancement of democracy, peace and progress in Nigeria and Africa. GEJ.”
