Former president, Goodluck Jonathan has warned Nigerians against voting for those he described as ‘killers’ in the forthcoming 2023 general election.
Jonathan Advises Nigerians
The ex-president spoke on Sunday in Uyo during a special interdenominational service to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the creation of Akwa Ibom State.
Jonathan said that when a ‘killer’ is mistakenly elected into office, the person would continue killing to remain in power because they are the enemies of society.
He also charged Nigerians to make sure that from the state legislature to the federal, govenros and all elective positions, only credible people should be voted in.
“In 2023, you must not make the mistake to vote killers. Those who will carry knives, guns, and all kinds of gadgets to go and kill people because of politics, are the enemies of society. If you kill to become a leader, you will continue to kill to remain a leader,” he said.
“The people will continue to suffer. Make sure that from the House of Assembly to the House of Representatives to Senate to governor, you vote the right people in Akwa Ibom State.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Goodluck Jonathan had also advised Nigerians against voting for politicians who practice “bread and butter” politics by using financial inducements to buy their way into public offices.
