Goodluck Jonathan's About

[]

Ebele Azikiwe, best of luck. Jonathan is a Nigerian politician who was elected President of the country in 2010 and has remained in office since then. He had previously served as Vice-President of Nigeria and Governor of Bayelsa State before becoming President. Since his involvement with the nascent People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the late 1990s, Jonathan has played a pivotal role in Nigerian politics. Given that he was born into a modest family of canoe manufacturers with no political experience, his climb to the pinnacle of Nigerian politics is quite extraordinary. He has a degree in zoology and has worked for the Oil Mineral Producing Areas Development Commission as an assistant director. He did not enter politics until the late 1990s, and within a few years he had established himself as one of the country's most renowned politicians. After serving as Governor of Bayelsa State, he was appointed Vice-President of Nigeria. He kept a low profile in this job, although playing a key role in negotiating with insurgents in the Niger delta. When incumbent President Yar'Adua took a leave of absence due to sickness, he served as Acting President and replaced him as President of Nigeria when he died.
