Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians to select their leaders through a democratic process, rather than relying on the judicial system. He made this statement on Saturday, March 18 after casting his vote in the governorship and state assembly election. Jonathan expressed his belief that the ballot papers should decide who leads the country, from the president to the parliamentarians, and not the courts. He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) but condemned the burning of electoral items by thugs in four wards under Constituency 2 in the Ogbia LGA. He called on the police to make arrests and prosecute those involved, and warned that the world is watching Nigeria.
