Former president Goodluck Jonathan has warned Nigerians not to vote for desperate politicians who are killers in the forthcoming 2023 elections.

“In 2023, you must not make the mistake to vote killers. Those who will carry knives, guns, and all kinds of gadgets to go and kill people because of politics, are the enemies of society. If you kill to become a leader, you will continue to kill to remain a leader,” Mr Jonathan said.

“The people will continue to suffer. Make sure that from the House of Assembly to the House of Representatives to Senate to governor, you vote the right people in Akwa Ibom State.”

The former President made this statement at Uyo on Sunday at an interdenominational service to commemorate Akwa Ibom at

35 anniversary.

In the run up to 2015 elections, Mr Jonathan declared his reelection was not worth the blood of citizens while advocating for one mam one vote.

Upon his defeat at the polls in 2015, Mr Jonathan handed over power to President Muhammadu Buhari.
