Goodluck Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan, a former president of Nigeria, advised lawmakers to prioritize Nigerians’ well-being throughout their campaigning for the general elections in 2023.

On August 25, during the annual Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida Legacy Dialogue in Abuja, he said this.

Jonathan, who participated virtually, stated: “The upcoming elections are essential for our country’s development, wealth, and goals. I want our leaders to display restraint in their campaigns and other political endeavors and to be cognizant of our unity and stability.

“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 mobilize 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.”

Also present at the occasion was Mohammed Namadi Sambo, Jonathan’s vice president. Sambo advised political party representatives and candidates to run issue-based campaigns in the general election of 2023.

“As we near the crucial period leading up to the 2023 general election in Nigeria, it is imperative to utilize this opportunity to urge all political parties, candidates, and other significant stakeholders to embrace issue-based campaigns,” Sambo stated.

“To prevent the political climate from becoming too heated, we must all refrain from using hate speech, profanity, and mudslinging.

A peaceful, free, and fair election next year will undoubtedly represent yet another significant turning point in our journey towards a nation that can sustain democracy, peace, and development.
