A former Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major-General John Enenche (rtd), has advised Nigerians on factors to be considered before voting a candidate into power.
In an open letter to Nigerians, Eneche urged the citizenry to consider a leader who has integrity, competence, sound national economic knowledge, local international goodwill, zero corruption/criminal records (convicted or not), and good health to withstand the rigorous demands that comes with the office of the presidency. He wrote: “My love for Nigeria is anchored on the fact that the country invested so much in my professional career development and life. “Implementation; this should be in the form of mass concurrence on the choice of the kind of President Nigerians need. “In this regard, factors to consider should be integrity, competence, sound national economic knowledge, local and international goodwill, zero corruption/criminal records (convicted or not), and good health to withstand the demands of the office of the President.” Speaking further, he insisted that Nigerians should not only attach the qualities listed to the office of the presidency but for other elective positions. He explained that a productive campaign should be one that cuts across ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds given the current situation in the country.
