A former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has urged Nigerians to prioritise patriotism, unity and peace as they make their choices at the polls in 2023.

Jonathan, in a goodwill message personally signed by him in Abuja to mark the 2022 Independence Day, said that the anniversary came at a time the nation was preparing for its general elections.

“Fellow Nigerians, our anniversary this year comes at a time our nation is preparing for general elections.

“It is a critical moment for us all. The elections provide another opportunity for our citizens to demonstrate our faith in the greatness of our nation. Let us be patriotic in the choices we make,” Jonathan said.

He urged Nigerians to prioritise the unity and peace of the country in their campaigns, and through the choices they would make at the polls in 2023.

“Ours is a great nation with boundless possibilities. Let us work in unity, live in peace, promote justice, and accommodate each other.

“That way, we shall build an inclusive and cohesive society where everyone is happy, safe, and proud of his country.” (NAN)
