Goodluck Jonathan, the former President of Nigeria is one of the prominent observers of the 2019 general election in South Africa.

President Jonathan is leading an election observer mission from the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA).

On Sunday May 5, he attended the final rally of the Economic Freedom Fighters at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

In a statement, EISA announced that Jonathan’s team comprises 37 international observers drawn from civil society organizations, election management bodies, and regional economic communities from 16 African countries.

“These elections which come in the 25th year of South Africa’s democratic journey are of great importance as they provide another opportunity for South Africans to exercise their right to vote and thus support the country’s democratic consolidation,” says President Jonathan.
