Former Head of State Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), has warned politicians to be cautious of their words and deeds as the 2023 general election approaches.
Abubakar, speaking at the 19th Daily Trust dialogue, noted the political class must realise that the fate of Nigeria lies in their hands.
The former Head of State warned that the political class must remember that no one can rule over a nation in ruins.
Abubakar said: “Our political class must realise that the fate of Nigeria lies in its hands and choose to do good in this moment of history.
“As they jostle for power in the coming elections, all politicians must watch their words and deeds carefully and avoid saying or doing things that will further heat up the polity.
“We must all remember that no one can rule over a nation in ruins. Leadership is a collective responsibility, and we must all play our parts positively.”
