Jonathan To Talk About boko Haram & Fighting Insurgency At World Press Conference In Geneva, Switzerland


Former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, will, on Wednesday, January 27, hold a world press conference in Ge­neva, Switzerland.
The press conference, which holds at 3:00pm local time, is part of ac­tivities lined up by the Circle of Diplomats (Circle Diplomatique) Geneva, in honour of Jonathan, which would be concluded with a din­ner same day.
According to a press release by Guy Mettan, Executive Director of the Geneva Press Club, Jonathan will address two most crucial topics in Ni­geria and West Africa at the press briefing.
Mettan said the former Nigerian president would talk about security and civil peace in Nigeria and West Africa, on one hand, as well as improvement of health and education of children, on the other.
He said accredited United Nations cor­respondents and Swiss journalists are expected at the press conference, which will most likely see Jonathan talking about Boko Haram ac­tivities in Nigeria and the fight against insurgency.
The Circle of Diplo­mats will also host a din­ner in honour of Jonathan on Wednesday night at the Intercontinental Ho­tel, Geneva.
Since leaving office on May 29, 2015, Jonathan has engaged in peace missions and election monitoring on behalf of the United Nations.
He has also received global awards and ac­claim for peacefully re­linquishing power after losing the presidential election last year.
Jonathan had conceded defeat to President Mu­hammadu Buhari last year even before the final results of the 2015 Nige­rian presidential election was announced.
