Jonathan becomes first African leader to be honoured with SCLC award (PHOTOS)

Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday, became the first African leader to be honoured by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
Jonathan was awarded with the Presidential Award in recognition of his leadership in advancing human rights, social justice and the fight for universal freedom.
The award given to Jonathan as part of the activities leading up to the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day on Monday, January 18th, 2016.

Speaking at the event, Jonathan said it was “virtually impossible to separate this worthy body from its founder, the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, or from epoch making landmark events of the American Civil Rights movement”.
“My personal takeaway from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, is service to God and the brotherhood and equality of all men before their Creator. In keeping with that, I have learnt not to look up to any man, except he is taller than I, or to look down on a fellow mortal, except I am admiring his shoes”.
