2023 General Election: Goodluck Jonathan Advises Politicians

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

He stated this on Thursday, August 25, in Abuja at the Annual Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida Legacy Dialogue.

Jonathan, who joined the programme virtually, said: “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.”

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.

Sambo said: “As we approach the critical stage towards the 2023 general election in Nigeria, it is important to use this opportunity to call on all political parties and indeed, candidates and other key stakeholders to adopt issue-based campaigns.

“We must all shun the use of hate or foul language and mudslinging to avoid overheating the polity. Peaceful, free and fair election next year will definitely mark yet another important milestone in our march towards sustainable democracy, peace and development of our dear nation.”
