Kingsley Moghalu, a presidential candidate in the 2019 election and aspirant in respect of the 2023 poll, on Tuesday asked followers of presidential hopefuls to be tolerant and respectful.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Moghalu stated that Nigerian politicians are friends who “wine and dine together”.
The former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Deputy-Governor’s advice is coming amid accusation by opposition supporters that followers of Peter Obi, presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party, are toxic.
“I believe it is important, no matter who anyone supports or will end up voting for in 2023, to be tolerant and respectful of ALL candidates. Please debate ideas, visions (if and where they exist), experience and track record, and avoid personalized insults.
“Intolerance, on/off social media, is wrong. The politicians you are fighting and killing each other for wine and dine with each other across party lines. Be wise! Nigerians reserve the right to vote for any candidate of their choice in a democracy. Just make informed choices,” Moghalu wrote on his verified Twitter.
