April 4, 2023

Former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and other prominent
African leaders and icons have been honoured with the African Democracy and
Peace Icon Award at the maiden edition of the African Heritage Concert and
Awards held in Kigali, Rwanda.
In his acceptance speech Jonathan appealed to African leaders who are privileged to
hold public offices to become servants of the people, and not turn themselves into the
“bosses of the people”.

Earlier in his opening remarks, Chairman of Heritage Times HT, Mr Moses Siloko
Siasia, noted that the choice of Rwanda as the venue for the event was strategic, given
the country’s front-line role in setting the pace for growth and sustainable development
in Africa.
