Former Presdent, Goodluck Jonathan appointed to head team of observers for Sierra Leone election

Goodluck Jonathan will serve as leader of the Election Observation Mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA). Jonathan left Nigeria for Freetown on Friday.

A statement by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, announced the appointment saying the mission has observers drawn from civil society organisations and election management bodies from across the continent.

Eze stated that the former president “is pleased to be part of the process in support of a peaceful and transparent election in Sierra Leone.” EISA is a not-for-profit election-focused organization that is working with national, regional, Pan-African and global partners throughout the African continent.

It is based in South Africa with field offices across the continent and has supported or observed over 100 electoral and political processes in Africa. Its assignment in Sierra Leone is in line with the organisation’s “vision of an African continent where democratic governance, human rights and citizen participation are upheld in a peaceful environment.”
