Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Sunday, hailed the appointment of former President Goodluck Jonathan as the leader of a 33-nation Observer Mission to the General Election holding in the East African country of Tanzania on  October 25, 2015.

A government statement, Sunday, made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, described the appointment of Jonathan as “a global recognition of the former president’s democratic credentials.”

Fayose said “Jonathan’s appointment to lead the Commonwealth observer team, comprising of 33 countries, is recognition of his remarkable role in the last presidential election, in which he conceded defeat, thereby saving Nigeria from catastrophe that even the international community thought would befall the country.”

Fayose who spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said “Jonathan should be celebrated and I am happy that the world is beginning to give him the deserved recognition and celebration less than five months that he left office.”
