Ahead of the 2019 general elections, former President Goodluck Jonathan has backed David Mark to become the country’s next president owing to his ability to strengthen the bond of unity.
Mr Mark, 70, an ex-Senate President is one of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) leading candidates.
Jonathan threw his weight behind the Senator during the latter’s visit to his Yenogoa residence on Monday.
The ex-President said that it would take a man with strength of character and clear conscience like Mr Mark to rebuild and foster unity in Nigeria in 2019.
“We are only existing superficially and this is very dangerous,” he warned.
He revealed that beyond the dwindling economy and worsening insecurity, the major problem the next president would face was the challenge of uniting the country and giving every section a sense of belonging.
Mr Jonathan noted that every right thinking Nigerian should crave for peace and unity as “we continue to stay together”.
“Staying together is what everyone desires as the global community respects and values us because of our size and population.
“As president of Nigeria, I worked harmoniously with Mark as President of the Senate. He demonstrated patriotism and loyalty to his fatherland.
“His colleagues admitted that he is a detribalised leader. He is the kind of man the nation needs now,” Mr Jonathan said.
The former president expressed optimism that the PDP would get it right in 2019 elections.
In his remarks, Mr Mark declared that Nigerians now know the difference between the former and present administrations.
He added that he possessed the experience, knowledge and skill to bring the nation out of the social and economic malaise within two years if elected.
