The Bayelsa state governor, Seriake Dickson, has called on Nigerians to focus on voting in competent and educated leaders.
Dickson said the time had come for Nigeria to be led by a visionary leader, a nation builder and a democrat.
In a statement by his special adviser on media relations, Fidelis Soriwei, the governor while playing the host to a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party and governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal, said Nigeria must produce a detribalised consensus builder as President.
He said the effort will focus on having a consciousness that the leader will be responsible for all Nigerians.
Seriake said: “Nigeria needs a competent leader, an educated leader. I know you all; all your certificates are genuine. Nigeria needs a nation builder, a bridge builder. Nigeria needs a democrat and I know you are all of these.
“The nation needs a detribalised consensus builder who knows that he has a responsibility to all; we have got a responsibility to rescue this nation.”
He also said that Bayelsa state, the Ijaw nation and associates in the Niger Delta would ensure that the 2019 election would be a referendum on restructuring.
The governor said the people’s votes will go to candidates with a commitment to restructure the country and address the obvious imbalances in the country.
