Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has advised Nigerians on who to vote for in the 2023 general elections.
Jonathan said Nigerians shouldn’t vote for persons who will buy their conscience and later disappoint them.
Jonathan also cautioned Nigerians against voting for politicians that would mortgage the future of their children and grandchildren.
Jonathan made his position known when delivering a keynote address at the one-year memorial summit in honour of late captain Idahosa Okunbo in Abuja yesterday.
The Bayelsa born politician urged electorates to be circumspect in exercising their voting rights in the 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.
