Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been chosen to present the keynote address at the Hope Global Forums conference which will hold in the second week of January 2016 in Atlanta, US.

Jonathan succeeds former US President, Bill Clinton who spoke at the 2015 edition which was attended by over 3, 000 leaders from 40 countries.
The former Nigerian president was invited via a letter jointly signed by global spokesman of Operation Hope, Andrew Young, Mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, and Chief Executive of Operation Hope, John Hope Bryant, The Cable reports.

The letter reads:
“As someone recognised for his leadership and vision in Nigeria and abroad, we are personally requesting your attendance. It is important for us that your influential voice and perspective be included as we drive a global conversation.”

“We invite you to join Fortune 500 CEO’s, private investors, financial leaders and government officials to connect and collaborate on this vision.”

“With the theme ‘Reimagining the Global Economy: Inclusive Economics’, the annual meeting is set against the backdrop of the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend and gathers leaders from government, community and the private sector to outline a vision for the modern global; economy.”
“A vision where the undeserved, working poor and struggling middle class are viewed as untapped assets for economic growth, entrepreneurship and job creation.”

“The powerful history of Atlanta as the ‘Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement’ serves as a catalyst for our gathering, highlighting the unfinished work of economic self-reliance launched by Dr. King prior to his death. We will honour that legacy with a series of activities for our guests, including ‘white glove’ viewing of Dr. King’s papers.”

Jonathan is also set to be honoured with an award by the Diplomatic Circle in Geneva, Switzerland in January 2016 and is the first African leader to receive the award.
