Former President Jonathan Urges Nigerians To Vote Leaders With Conscience

By Abdulrasheed Yusuf

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has advised Nigerians to avoid voting leaders that will buy their conscience and mortgage their future.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that Jonathan gave the advice on Saturday in Abuja in a keynote address at the one-year Memorial Summit in honour of late Captain Idahosa Okunbo.

The former president urged electorates to reflect in exercising their voting rights come 2023 General Elections.

“Ahead of the 2023 elections, we are getting ready to be wooed and wowed at campaign grounds by various politicians seeking different offices.

“But these thoughts are beyond 2023. It is about Nigeria and the kind of leadership it deserves now and in the future to ensure that our country assumes its rightful place among the comity of nations.

“My charge to Nigerians is to be circumspect in the exercise of their voting rights.

“We must shift away from the politics of bread and butter and ensure that we do not elect leaders that will buy our conscience today and mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren.

“We should endeavour to elect only those that will leave legacies of unity, peace and development,” Jonathan said.
