It’s amazing how President Goodluck Jonathan is never running out of good luck. A single phone call to his opponent, General Muhammadu Buhari, to congratulate him on his victory shortly before the end of the polls has placed the embattled President on another platform.
Contrary to claims that the Jonathan would be retiring to his Otuoke villa, he has just landed a juicy appointment from United Nations as its Envoy in Africa.
The 57 years old President would be the first African former head of state to be assigned such role. He will oversee UN affairs on the African continent. His role will be similar to that of former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, who UN appointed its Middle East envoy.
Some disappointments are indeed blessings in disguise.
