Former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians not to lower their guard, but use next year’s elections to save the country’s democracy.
Dr. Jonathan made the call on the occasion of the 70th birthday celebration of the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah in Abuja.
Speaking on the theme of the event, “Nigeria’s Unfinished Greatness: Next steps”, Dr. Jonathan urged Nigerians to remain vigilant and put all hands on deck to choose leaders that would take the nation to the Promised Land.
He charged the youths that have registered ahead of the elections to endeavor to walk their talk by making sure they come out to vote on Election Day.
The former Nigerian leader described Nigeria as a work in progress; adding that until that work was done, people like Bishop Kukah, who serve as the conscience of the nation, will continue to be around to constantly hold the mirror of the nation’s progression to its face.
