The former president counseled Nigerian young to adopt excellent behavior because it will result in successful elections.

He said: “Before this time, we were always afraid of the gun as a threat to democracy. But the biggest threat to democracy now is the issue of propaganda, fake news and hate speech.

“Anybody that’s an advocate of this is a threat to democracy. Our young people should know that we should embrace good conduct that will lead to good elections.

“We must first have a country before we talk about having a president. If we destroy a country, then we do not need a president.

“Supporters of those who want to be leaders should first know that we need to have a nation before whoever they’re supporting can emerge as a governor or president.”

Jonathan pointed out that the motivating factor that makes one go into politics is important and people should not go into it for money.

He added: “I always say that if your reason for going into politics is to make money, go and be a businessman so that nobody will come and harass you.

“If you want to go into politics, it should be the people first, not you first. If you’re somebody who believes in yourself first, then you have no business in politics.”
