Ex-President of Nigeria,
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has obtained a membership role on the international advisory board of the European Corporate Council on Africa and the Middle East (ECAM Council).
The Bayelsa-born politician
assumed the first sub-Saharan African leader role to serve on the board of the ECAM Council.
The ECAM is a non-profit organisation established to promote and develop relations between the countries of Europe, Africa, and the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region, which has Italy as a leading role.
The organisation’s top members include; former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, former President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, and a host of others
Also, as stated in his appointment letter by the chairman of the ECAM Council, Dr. Kamel Ghribi, the board will be delighted to welcome ex-President Jonathan on board.
The letter reads;
“For your information, the Chairman of ECAM Council Dr. Kamel Ghribi is well acquainted with Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. We are setting up an international advisory board of ECAM Council and Dr. Ghribi would be delighted to welcome him on board.”
Again, the letter noted that the council was put up to help mediate sustainable healthcare with its focus on the common issues affecting the Southern hemisphere of the globe.
Jonathan has also been billed to attend this year’s ECAM Council’s high-level advisory board meeting in Italy scheduled for Monday, May 30.
