Information reaching Naija News House says that After Meeting With Peter Obi, Jonathan Reveals Next Nigerian President
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has counselled Nigerians to elect someone who would take Nigeria as a project and not compromise the interest of the country for personal aggrandizement.
Fielding questions from newsmen at the Uphill residence of former Head of State, General Abdulsalam Abubakar after a courtesy visit, Jonathan advised Nigerians, especially the youths to wisely choose their next leaders.
He said: “We all wish our country well. To every Nigerian, especially the young ones, elections are coming, they have to elect the person they believe would lead us well, the person who will serve us well. A leader is also a servant and as a President, you are to lead and you are to serve.
“Elect somebody that will take the interest of all of us, the interest of the country, somebody that would not compromise our own interest for his own aggrandizement. Someone that would carry all of us along. Most especially someone that would take Nigeria as a project.”
The former President said that Nigeria still needs Abdulsalam because of the important role he plays in maintaining the peace and unity of the country as a member of the National Peace Committee saying that his visit to the former Head of state was to encourage him and see how he is recuperating from his illness.
He said: “It has been over a year since I visited the state. As the youngest former President, I go around from time to time to visit them. I haven’t seen General Abdulsalami for quite some time and you know he just came back from medical treatment abroad, so it is proper for me to come with some of my friends to pay a courtesy call and greet him. We also made a stop at General Babangida’s house to see him. It is a regular visit we always do.
“I wish General Abdulsalam well because we need him, especially now that we are talking about the 2023 elections. You know he chairs the National Peace Committee that tries to midwife peace process during elections, this is the time he is much needed. I know there will be so much pressure on him now to see what he can do so that the 2023 elections can be conducted freely and fairly and in an environment where there is peace and love.”
