Former President Goodluck Jonathan has urged candidates and other politicians alike to be mindful of the nation’s corporate existence and wellbeing of Nigerians in their campaigns and other electioneering activities for the 2023 general elections.
He gave the charge on Thursday in Abuja during the Annual Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida Legacy Dialogue.
According to him, it is also important for other Nigerians to shun apathy and indifference, but to positively participate in the nation’s democratic processes to choose the right leaders that would make Nigeria better and united.
“The forthcoming elections are critical to our national aspirations, shared prosperity and development. I urge our politicians to be mindful of our unity and stability and exercise discipline in their campaigns and other political activities.
“To the rest of us, this period does not afford us the luxury of indifference. We must be determined to participate in our democratic processes. It requires that we must mobilise to vote those who will manage the affairs of the country with honesty in order to guarantee peace, justice, unity and progress in our land,” Jonathan who spoke virtually said.
