Ali Modu Sheriff, a former governor of Borno State, believes Nigerians must avoid the pitfalls of ethno-religious politics in order to elect the right leader in 2023.

Sheriff made the remarks while meeting with members of the All Progressives Congress pressure group, Frontier for Equality Leadership and Good Governance, in his office on Thursday.

He stated that when making a decision, Nigerians should prioritize competence.

“If the man who will bring Nigerians relief is coming from a mountain in Ogoja, we should go and look for him,” the former governor said.

“If he's in Adamawa's further reaches, we should go look for him. We should go look for him if he's coming from the end of Anambra. We need to undertake some soul-searching and find a leader.

“We will not succeed in getting it right in this country we dearly love until we all believe in ourselves as a nation, and believe that we are all equal, and believe that a strong leader will emerge from any section of the country, regardless of his religion, tribe, or where he comes from.”

He stated that Nigeria is a very intriguing country in terms of diversity, and that we can utilize our people and material resources for the benefit of all.

The APC chieftain stated that in order to keep power beyond 2023, his party, the APC, must work more than ever before to acquire the trust of Nigerians.

He predicted that at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari's (retd.) term in 2023, the APC would have to work extra hard to win a fraction of the 12 million votes that the Buhari brand had garnered o ver the years.
