Nigeria's former president Goodluck Jonathan has charged citizens to shift away from bread and butter politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Jonathan made the appeal while delivering a keynote address at the one-year memorial summit in honour of the late Captain Idahosa Okunbo in Abuja on Saturday,

He warned Nigerians against voting for politicians who would tamper with the future of their children and grandchildren, urging the electorate to be circumspect in exercising their voting rights.

“Ahead of the 2023 elections, we are getting ready to be wooed and wowed at campaign grounds by various politicians seeking different offices.

“But these thoughts are beyond 2023. It is about Nigeria and the kind of leadership it deserves now and in the future to ensure that our country assumes its rightful place among the comity of nations.


“My charge to Nigerians is to be circumspect in the exercise of their voting rights.

“We must shift away from the politics of bread and butter and ensure that we do not elect leaders that will buy our conscience today and mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren.

“We should endeavour to elect only those that will leave legacies of unity, peace and development", Jonathan stated.
