Goodluck Jonathan, a former president, advised young people to support the presidential candidate who will best serve the needs of the country.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Jonathan made the appeal on Wednesday while visiting Abdulsalami Abubakar, a former head of state, in Minna, Niger State.
The president claimed that right now, all the country needs is a leader who has its best interests at heart.
He advised them to pick a candidate they think will lead and serve in that capacity very well, saying that any candidate who views the nation as a project will preserve it.
“I appeal to the youth to select a person they believe will lead us well and serve us well, somebody who will take the interests of all of us and the country to heart; a leader who will not compromise our interests for personal gain, especially one who sees Nigeria as a project.
“A leader is also a servant, and as president, you are to lead and you are to serve,” Jonathan said.
The former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has urged Nigerians to choose the candidate they believe will have the best interests of the nation at heart.
