Goodluck Jonathan is among other high-profile international speakers expected to discuss and seek practical solutions to major global challenges being faced today at the Rhodes Forum in Greece.
Jonathan alongside a former president of Mali, Dioncounda Traore, will address the opening plenary session on October 6, 2017.
Jonathan speaking ahead of the forum said countries or even continents cannot deal with the challenges facing the world today in isolation.
He said: “The challenges facing the world today – whether financial crises, armed conflicts, increasing terrorist threat and immigration on an unprecedented scale – cannot be tackled by countries or even continents in isolation.
They demand profound global thinking and willingness to seek solutions through dialogue, mutual respect and open-mindedness.
“African voices must be heard in this search for common solutions that benefit the whole of mankind, and international gatherings such as the Rhodes Forum provide an essential platform for this to happen.”
