Jonathan Cautions INEC, Politicians, Parties Ahead Of Guber Election In Bayelsa, Imo, Kogi | READ MORE

Former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), political parties and candidates to shun vi-olence and ensure credibility and transparency at the Saturday, November 11, 2023 off cycle governorship election in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi states.

Jonathan on his Facebook handle on Friday, restated that “nobody’s ambition is worth the blo-od of any citizen, adding that no politician who truly means well for the people, would recruit thugs to cause violence.

He wrote;

As citizens of voting age in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States go to the polls for governorship election tomorrow, I urge all electorates and politicians to avoid violence and conduct themselves in a peaceful and lawful manner.
Let us refrain from all activities that will jeopardize the collective peace and stability of our states and our country.
A man who means well for his people would not recruit thugs to maim and kill the very people he wants to govern.
Let me reiterate that nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any citizen. Therefore, let us resist the temptation and inducements that may be deployed as agents of destruction.
For democracy to endure and be impactful, we must ensure that the leadership recruitment process, especially elections, are credible, transparent, fair and peaceful.
I urge the electoral management body, security agencies and other stakeholders to be professional and patriotic in the discharge of their responsibilities during and after the election.
Democracy draws its strength from the people; let us work to strengthen the confidence of the people by ensuring that the electoral process is peaceful and transparent.
It is the collective responsibility of all stakeholders to allow the people to choose their leaders peacefully. That way, our democracy will grow and become sustainable.
