Goodluck Jonathan, the former president of Nigeria, has urged young people to vote for a leader who will prioritize the needs of the country.
A president who has the best interests of the country at heart is all that is currently needed, according to Jonathan, who made the statement on Wednesday in Minna, Niger State, while visiting a former head of state named Abdulsalami Abubakar.
“I urge the young people to vote for a leader they think will serve us well; someone who will put the needs of the group and the nation first; a leader who won’t sacrifice our interests for their own, especially one who sees Nigeria as a project.”
As Jonathan stated, “A leader is also a servant, and as president, you are to lead and to serve.”
The nation can only be saved, according to the former president, by a candidate who views Nigeria as a project.
He added that he was in Minna not only as a courtesy visit following his return from medical treatment abroad but also because the country needs him due to the role he plays in stabilizing the country’s peace.
“I haven’t been to the state in over a year. As the youngest former president, I visit them from time to time. I haven’t seen General Abdulsalami in a while, and as you know, he recently returned from receiving medical treatment abroad. Therefore, it is appropriate for me to come with a group of friends to pay him a courtesy call and say hello, “the speaker said.
