Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan clocked 57 years today.
He was born exactly 57 years ago in Ogbia, Bayelsa state.
We bring you the photographs of the celebration in Aso Villa today.
Later today, the birthday boy will leave for London to preside over a meeting of Nigeria’s Honorary International Investment Council (HIIC) which opens in the British capital on Friday.
The HIIC which was established in 2004 advises the Federal Government on matters pertaining to Nigeria’s economic development, making the Nigerian economy more competitive globally and attracting greater direct foreign investment to boost domestic industrial growth and job creation.
Deliberations at the HIIC meeting in London will focus on the current investment landscape in Nigeria, developments and opportunities in the ongoing upgrade and expansion of Nigeria’s public infrastructure, as well as opportunities and reforms in Nigeria’s rail transportation, power and construction sectors.
