Former Super Eagles defender, Joseph Yobo has admonished the various aspirants contesting for the 2023 general elections to put the interest of the Nigerian children first ahead of their selfish goal.
The former Everton star, who is the face of the Board of Trustees Chairman of the Grassroots Mobilisation Initiative for Good Governance stated this in Abuja.
He noted that the presidential contests in the two major parties the ruling All Progressives Congress and main opposition Peoples Democratic Party are causing apprehension.
He therefore adviced party delegates to eschew personal temptations and place the nation’s interest and the future of the children above every other consideration.
“We noted that the usual desperate efforts being exerted by politicians to gain the support of their party delegates by every means and tactic, including compromise through financial seduction is at an alarming high.
“The presidential contests in the two major parties the ruling All Progressives Congress and main opposition Peoples Democratic Party are causing apprehension.
“The delegates, who are by every implication, representatives of the various and collective interests of the entire nation for the moment, must therefore resist every temptation that would make them betray the trust reposed on them by God and man.
“We, therefore, call on all party delegates to eschew personal temptations and place the nation’s interest and the future of our children above every other consideration.
“Delegates must avoid costly adventures that would end up producing incompetent and inept political leaders who will continue to exploit the people, thereby thriving on emotional-driven courses, sowing seed of communal discord, causing divisions and leaving the people more unsecured and impoverished,” he said.
