THE Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, on Monday urged Nigerians to avoid voting parochial leaders as the go to the polls in 2023.
He advised Nigerians to look out for and vote for politicians who are versatile and friendly with fellow Nigerians across all geo-political zones to foster national unity.
The governor said this in a keynote address he delivered at the 4th annual criminal law review conference of the Rule of Law Development Foundation with the theme: ‘Judicial updates and legislative developments in criminal law: Criminal procedure law, criminal policy and evidence,’ in Abuja, on Monday.
He urged citizens to elect “friends and associates across the length and breadth of the country”. This, he said was necessary if the nation must surmount her current security and economic challenges.
Tambuwal further said, Nigeria does not need a “parochial and provincial politician”, but “an incorruptible leader who understands that the best way to fight corruption is by personal examples.”
