The information is seen in a statement released to newsmen by Jonathan’s Special Adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, on Wednesday.
With the appointment, the former president has now become the first sub-Saharan African leader to serve on the board of the ECAM Council.
“For your information, the Chairman of ECAM Council Dr. Kamel Ghribi is well acquainted with Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
“We are setting up an international advisory board of ECAM Council and Dr. Ghribi would be delighted to welcome him on board”, a letter from the ECAM Council to the Office of Jonathan informing him of the appointment states.
