Home Blog Posts Presidential Patronage: Sirleaf Johnson Of Liberia Praises Jonathan To High Heavens

Either for lack of a clear understanding of how president Jonathan runs Nigeria or just a deliberate attempt to patronize her fellow president, Liberia’s president declares in this essay that Nigeria has “grown out of its past of corruption, mismanagement and brutality” under President Jonathan.

Below is the essay as published by Time magazine

Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan exemplifies the African political renaissance at a time when the people of the continent are starting to reap the fruit of their resources and their hard work. President Jonathan, 54, possesses the qualities needed at this moment of great challenges, having come to power at a crucial moment in the history of Nigeria. The country has grown out of its past of corruption, mismanagement and brutality, but the foundation of good governance is still fragile.

In two short years, President Jonathan has shown the same dexterity he demonstrated as governor of Bayelsa, the same ability to find the remedies to the many complexities of running a nascent democracy. He has spearheaded the fight against corruption and turned Nigeria into an example of good governance. He has also made a significant impact on consolidating peace and security in West Africa. From the onset of our own crisis, Liberia has benefitted from the support of Nigeria. President Jonathan not only upheld the trend but added to it. With leaders like President Jonathan, Africa is sure to move toward prosperity, freedom and dignity for all of its people.

Johnson Sirleaf is the President of Liberia
