Ben Murray-Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East has cited what Nigerians should put into consideration when voting for the next president in 2019.
Ben Bruce said the religion and tribe of a presidential candidate is not essential in selecting next president but the capability of the candidate.
The Bayelsa lawmaker on his Twitter page also urged Nigerians to compare their condition of living since 2015 when APC administration took over power.
Bruce wrote: “Are you better off today than you were in 2015? A simple question. Are you able to eat better today than in 2015? Are you able to look after your health better today than in 2015? These are questions that should guide who we vote for in 2019, not who‘s from our tribe or religion
“If you are ill, you want the best doctor to treat you. You do not care if he is Black, Brown or White. You just care that he is capable. Nigeria is sick.
“We don’t need a Northern or Southern President or a Christian or a Muslim President. We just need a capable President in 2019.”
