Immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan with Naomi King, Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s sister, as he was awarded by the the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). The SCLC is an African-American civil rights organization.
I thank Dr. Charles Steele Jr, President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, and the executive of the SCLC for honoring me today. It was also a pleasure to meet Naomi King, the sister of the late American Civil Rights leader and founder of the SCLC, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who was kind enough to attend the event and identify with the goals and aspirations of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation. By this award, I am further inspired to continue to work for the advancement of democracy, peace and progress in Nigeria and Africa. GEJ.
