Abuja- Former President Goodluck Jonathan has touched down in Lusaka, Zambia to commence his task to lead the African Union Election Observer Mission to Zambia to monitor the general elections.
Before he departed, he had met with President Buhari to brief him about the mission.
They had met a few days ago when Jonathan had called on the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
On arrival at the Lusaka airport, he was received by the African Union team and government officials.
The AU had appointed Jonathan as the head of its Election Observer Mission last week, a team that included high profile personalities, diplomats, civic groups and experts.
The Zambian election is slated for August 11
Jonathan had also led AU observers to Tanzania in October 2015. The outcome of the election was deemed fair and credible.
