TIME, a U.S based magazine that covers everything in politics, Business, technology, health and science and style has published its important 100 most influential people in the world.



Nigeria’s democratically elected president Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan has been named as one of the most influential people.
According to the magazine, the people on this list are “the people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world. Meet the breakouts, pioneers, moguls, leaders and icons who make up this year&#39s TIME 100”.

An excerpt from the magazine reads:

“Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan exemplifies the African political renaissance at a time when the people of the continent are starting to reap the fruit of their resources and their hard work. President Jonathan, 54, possesses the qualities needed at this moment of great challenges, having come to power at a crucial moment in the history of Nigeria. The country has grown out of its past of corruption, mismanagement and brutality, but the foundation of good governance is still fragile.


In two short years, President Jonathan has shown the same dexterity he demonstrated as governor of Bayelsa, the same ability to find the remedies to the many complexities of running a nascent democracy. He has spearheaded the fight against corruption and turned Nigeria into an example of good governance. He has also made a significant impact on consolidating peace and security in West Africa. From the onset of our own crisis, Liberia has benefitted from the support of Nigeria. President Jonathan not only upheld the trend but added to it. With leaders like President Jonathan, Africa is sure to move toward prosperity, freedom and dignity for all of its people”.

Others on the list include U.S President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, NBA star Jeremy Lin, Singers Rihanna & Adele, Head designer at Alexander McQueen Sarah Burton, soon to be Chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Fatou Bensouda, Duchess of Cambridge Catherine and sister Pippa Middleton, Talk show host Chelsea Handler and Actresses Tilda Swinton and Viola Davis.
