A former President Goodluck Jonathan has reiterated that no ambition whatsoever is worth taking the life of another person.

He said this while advising the presidential candidates of political parties such as All Progressives Congress, People’s Democratic Party, and Labour Party among others in a congratulatory statement on his social media page on Thursday.

Jonathan also advised the presidential candidates of the different political parties to avoid divisive campaigns ahead of the 2023 elections.

He added that it was important to avoid acrimonious campaigns so that Nigeria could win.

Mentioning the names of the candidates, he said, “I congratulate the winners of the various primaries across the political spectrum, particularly Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who has won the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the flagbearers of other parties that have also concluded their primaries.

“Your emergence as the flagbearers of your parties after submitting yourselves to rigorous selection and election processes demonstrates your belief and interest in the progress of our nation.

“As you progress towards the electioneering campaigns, it is important that the issues confronting the country and credible solutions take centre stage.

“I urge you to conduct your campaigns in a manner devoid of acrimony, divisiveness and treachery so that at the end of the day Nigeria will win, democracy will triumph and humanity will be better for it.

“As I have always said, no ambition is worth the life of another. As candidates, you must eschew violence and acts that will encourage any form of bloodletting or exacerbate the national fault lines.”
