“We should not consider the religious or ethnic backgrounds of anybody we are voting for, but Nigeria first.

“Our country should be our priority above anything and not voting for any person who may worsen our present challenges.

“Our country is far better than many countries of the world in terms of security.

“Therefore, we should continue to support and appreciate our country and leaders with prayers in order to be able to address our challenges.”
