By Tony Adibe

A former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East in the Senate (PDP), Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has advised political actors contesting for various public offices to refrain from mudslinging and character assassination but to campaign on issues that would have direct link to the wellbeing of Nigerians.

Senator Nnamani said: “Those who engage in campaign of calumny are obviously bereft of ideas. Anyone vying for public office must have his or her manifesto or programme of action”.

He said in a goodwill message to Nigerians commemorating the New Year that the electorate should be wise enough to vote for candidates with proven track record of performance and “not those who exploit our fault lines of ethnicity or religion to gain advantage”.

The medical-doctor-turned politician advised Nigerians to vote for candidates who can be trusted, insisting that “we need public officers who can truly identify with the people because the outcome of 2023 polls will define the future of Nigeria.

“We should do away with mundane issues of ethnic or religious sentiments but to vote for candidates based on capacity and competence to deliver”.

He craved for a free, fair, and credible elections that would reflect the true wishes and aspirations of Nigerians.

Senator Nnamani, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Cooperation, and Integration in Africa/NEPAD, also bemoaned the deteriorating security situation in parts of the country especially in the Southeast region and called for collaborative efforts between the security operatives and communities to halt the menace.

He was of the view that security should not be left for government alone and urged communities to participate in order to fish out “these criminals who lives amongst the people in the communities “.

While wishing Nigerians a prosperous new year,  prayed for a peaceful atmosphere that would guarantee free, fair and credible elections in 2023.
