Kosi Uchenna

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has warned Nigerians not to vote for candidates that will buy their conscience.

Jonathan asked Nigerians against electing politicians that would mortgage the future of their children and those yet unborn.

He made these calls while delivering a keynote address at the one-year memorial summit in honour of late Captain Idahosa Okunbo, in Abuja on Saturday, NAN reports.

He said, “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.
