Vote for president who doesn’t compromise, Jonathan advises young people

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on Nigerian youth to vote for a president who has the best interests of the nation in mind.

Jonathan, who called in Minna, Niger, on Wednesday when he visited a former head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, said a president who has the best interests of the country in mind is all the nation needs right now.

“I appeal to the young people to choose a person who they believe will lead us well and serve us well, someone who will take the interests of all of us and the country to heart; a leader who does not risk our interests for personal gain, especially not one who sees Nigeria as a project.

“A leader is also a servant, and as president you have to lead and serve,” Jonathan said.

The former president also stated that only a candidate who sees Nigeria as a project can save the nation.

He went on to say that apart from a courtesy call following his return from medical treatment abroad, he was in Minna because the nation needs him for the role he plays in stabilizing the nation’s peace.

“It has been over a year since I visited the state. As the youngest former president, I occasionally go around to visit them. I haven’t seen General Abdulsalami in a long time, and you know he just got back from medical treatment abroad, so it’s appropriate that I come with some of my friends to pay a courtesy visit and talk to him. greet,” he said.
