Ahead of the 2023 general elections, former President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday allayed fears of Nigeria’s disintegration, saying the country will still remain.
He stated this during the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)’s Council of the WISE strategic retreat and planning workshop which held in Lagos.
“When elections are coming, there is always this fear that the country will implode. But you see that the country has remained stable,” he said.
“When I was in office, (during) the 2015 elections, some people were sending words out of the country, but nothing happened at the end of the day. So 2023 will come and go and this country will remain.”
The former Nigerian President also expressed confidence in ECOWAS ability to solve the numerous challenges confronting the sub-region.
