As Nigeria prepares to elect another president to pilot her affairs for another four years come 2023, former President Goodluck Jonathan has tasked Nigerians not to elect greedy politicians who will not think about the interest of the country but what they can amass for themselves.
Jonathan gave the charge in Minna, Niger State Thursday, in a chat with newsmen after paying a courtesy visit to former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retired), at his uphill residence.
Royal Times reports that the former president prayed that Nigeria will have a free and fair election which will be conducted in an environment that there will be peace and love.
“I am the most junior among the former president, so from time to time I use to go down and greet them. I have not seen Abdulsalam for quite some time, he just came back from abroad so it’s only proper for me to come with some of my friends to see him. We need him especially now that we are talking about elections.”
“This is the time that we need him and there is so much pressure on him now so he’ll see what he can do so that the 2023 election will be conducted freely and fairly.
“The burden is on him as the chairman of the National Peace Committee, we all wish our country well especially for the younger generations. The elections are coming, you have to select the person you believe that will lead us well, that will serve . Somebody that will take the interest of all of us, the interest of the country, that will not compromise. Somebody that will carry all of us along.
