Former President Goodluck Jonathan says political office should not be used as an instrument of punishment.

 Jonathan said this on Tuesday at the presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Ox-bow Lake Pavillion in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state capital.

 “Political office should not be used as instrument of punishment to the people,” Jonathan said.

 TheCable reports that he also said Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, is a man capable of bringing Nigeria together in unity and in peace.

 The former president said the PDP candidate loves the people of the state and urged them to vote for him.

 “Atiku has love and understanding for the people of Bayelsa state and the Ijaws. Atiku will definitely bring the whole country together in unity and peace.”

 On his part, Atiku restated his promise to make youth and women empowerment his priority if he gets elected.

 “Now is the time to secure the future of Nigerians,” he said.

 “Youth and women empowerment is going to be top on my agenda, if elected as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” TheCable.
