President Jonathan makes list of 100 Most Influential People in the World

President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria yesterday made The TIME 100 most influential people in the world. TIME took time to x-ray and bring out the names of the people who have made more news in different fields such as sport, politics, business etc in the past 12 months.

Below is what Jonhson Sirleaf, President of Liberia wrote about Goodluck Jonathan as he made the TIME list:

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
