Former President Goodluck Jonathan has warned that politics was not about dividing the people and fighting enemies.

He stated this while speaking on Friday during a virtual conference organized by the umbrella body of Ijaw cultural associations known as the Ijaw Nation Development Group (INDG).

The former president politicians to put the interest of the nation first.

According to Jonathan, politicians must forge a common agenda that would promote peace and sustainable development in the nation.

He said: “To the politicians amongst us, let us shun politics of bitterness and violence and pursue our common interest, regardless of party affiliations.

“Politics is not about creating and fighting enemies, it is not about dividing the people. Politics is about aspiring for a platform and the ability to utilise it to positively impact our people and develop the nation.

“Irrespective of party differences, let us forge a common agenda that will promote peace, unity and prosperity among our people.

“As a crusader for functional democracy and good governance in our country and continent, I will like to see our people play key roles in the emergence of who leads them and how they are led.

“Nothing drags a people and a nation back more than social crisis occasioned by the struggle for leadership. We cannot pretend to love our people if we place our personal ambitions over and above everything else and allow it to frustrate the people’s will and our common good.”
