2019: Dont criticise incompetent govt, just vote it out - Gen Abdulsalami tells Nigerians


•General Abdulsalami


Former military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar has advised Nigerians not to be contented with merely criticising incompetent government - whether at the state level or centre, but should also go some steps further to vote such government out of power.

Abubakar also urged the electorate to shun vote selling while the security agents deployed to provide security during polls should not take side as witnessed in Ekiti recently.

The General made this position known on Friday evening at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, Jos, where he delivered the institution's Distinguished Annual Lecture on ‘Election and Security in Nigeria: Policy Options and Strategies.'

The lecture came 18 hours ahead of the Graduation Ceremony of the Senior Executive Course (SEC) 40 slated for today (Saturday).

He lamented that even as political parties increased in Nigeria, hitting 91 in number, saying they lacked ideology.

"Let me say (it) that every citizen must do their duty; you must not sell your vote, you must register to vote, and stop criticising the failures of government if you will not go and vote them out if they are not doing their job. You should not allow your children to be used for violence," he said.
