The former Nigerian leader said this is majorly why the youths are disillusioned with Nigeria's politics and democracy in the country.

However, Jonathan called on leaders and stakeholders to stick to democracy because, according to him, it is the only system of government that promises accommodation to diversity in tribe, religion, politics, and other ramifications of life.

Vote wisely, Jonathan advises

Moving forward, he advised Nigerians to elect only leaders who will take the nation to its desired destination from 2023.

His words:

“Looking at the states and so on, we are derailing towards quasi-fascist form of government, but democracy is not only about winning elections alone, it is about accommodation. We, as leaders at the centre and at the state levels, especially at this time when elections are coming, must accommodate different views.
“Towards this goal, we are again faced with a good opportunity of choosing our leaders as the nation prepares to go to the polls next year. Let us choose those that will take us to the desired destination and the promised land.
“Nigeria may not be where we want it to and should be, but we should not give up or lose hope by focusing on only the negative.”
