Ahead of the 2023 general elections, former President Goodluck Jonathan has advised Nigerian youths to vote for only those that will promote peace and unity of the country.
The former president urged the youths not to vote for those that would erect ethnoreligious walls across the country and further impede the progress of Nigeria.
According to New Telegraph, Jonathan gave the advice on Saturday, September 3, in Owerri, the Imo state capital at the lecture organized by the Imo Correspondent Chapel in honour of Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, who clocked 80 years.
Speaking further, the ex-president called on young Nigerians to take back their country and be intentional in their actions and voting in the 2023 elections.
“Luckily, we are in an election cycle. So, my challenge to the youth is to take charge of their future by electing those who believe in our unity and will promote peace and progress, not those who will erect ethnic walls and religious barriers among our people,” Jonathan was quoted as saying
