Nigeria's former president Dr Goodluck Jonathan is in Sao Tome and Principe for an African peace summit focusing on 'Interdependence, Mutual Prosperity and Universal Values.'
The former president said he arrived Sao Tome and Principe on Wednesday, September 4, for the peace summit.
"The bid to restore peace on the continent requires that African leaders really need more of such diligent engagements, at this time," ex-president Jonathan said in a post on Facebook.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Jonathan said he would keep being committed to promoting peace and supporting efforts toward consolidating democracy in Africa.
Jonathan said this while delivering his speech at the International Leadership Conference in Seoul, South Korea.
The ex president disclosed that he draws strength and inspiration as a public servant from the idea of peaceful living.
He told the audience: “The idea of peaceful living is an ideal from which I drew strength and inspiration as a public servant in my country. It is the philosophy to which I have committed myself since leaving office as president of Nigeria in 2015.
“Promoting peace and supporting efforts toward consolidating democracy in Africa is a commitment to which I will continue to apply my time.
“My approach to this cause is to continue to work with all well-meaning citizens of the world who share the view that the people’s happiness derives from a culture of good governance.
“Such happiness and the attendant sense of belonging comes principally from the citizen’s confidence in those who govern and how they govern.”
