June 12: ‘Do Or Die Politics In Nigeria Must Stop’ – Jonathan Tells Tinubu

Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has admonished President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to promote a democratic system where every citizen is free to voice their opinions without obstacles.

Jonathan stressed the need to put an end to ‘do or die’ politics in Nigeria.

Naija News reports that the former leader voiced this opinion on Tuesday during a one-day event to celebrate 25 years of continuous democracy in Nigeria.

At the event held in the Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja, Jonathan elaborated that it is President Tinubu’s duty to ensure that the upcoming 25 years of democracy in Nigeria begin positively.

“Together, let us build a Nigeria where every citizen has a voice, where opportunities abound, where the promise of a better tomorrow is not just a dream.

“We must not hand over to our children a democracy built on politics of region or religion.

“The National Assembly can also look at models that will suit us. We must address the factors that give rise to this Do or Die politics. It is inimical to consolidating democracy,” he said.

The former president added: “So for the honourable Vice President, we are hoping that you build more infrastructure for us, improve the quality of education, facilities, etc.

“One key thing also is that, for the next twenty-five years, you will need to build a democracy that will reduce friction.

“The number of litigations that follow every round of election in Nigeria is very disruptive. If we must have a solid and enduring democracy, this practice needs to be diluted, and I know you and President Bola Tinubu, who was a key actor in the June 12 crisis, will have the capacity to navigate through that process.”
