2023 Election: Vote Wisely, Jonathan admonishes youths
Vote Wisely, Jonathan admonishes youths
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on the Nigerian youths to vote for a president that has the interest of the nation at heart.
He stated this when he visited a former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar in Minna on Wednesday. He said “I appeal to the youth to select a person they believe will lead us well and serve us well, somebody who will take the interests of all of us and the country to heart; a leader who will not compromise our interests for personal gain, especially one who sees Nigeria as a project.
“A leader is also a servant, and as president, you are to lead and you are to serve,” Jonathan said.
The former president also stated that only a candidate who sees Nigeria as a project can save the nation and not one who serves to enrich only himself.
He further said that he was in Minna because the nation needs him as a result of the role he plays in stabilizing the peace of the nation and not simply because he was paying a courtesy visit as a result of returning from his medical treatment abroad. “It has been over a year since I visited the state. As the youngest former president, I go around from time to time to visit them. I haven’t seen General Abdulsalami for quite some time, and you know he just came back from medical treatment abroad, so it is proper for me to come with some of my friends to pay a courtesy call and greet him,” he said.
