Stuart Symington, US Ambassador to Nigeria, has urged Nigerians to vote candidates based on records and not promises in 2019.
Symington has made the call in a Christmas message to Nigerians yesterday, saying that Nigerians have their future in their hands.
“As you go into 2019 you will be facing a new round of elections. What you do in those elections would be crucial not just for you but for all of us. And as you get ready, I ask you to think of three things.
“First, charge your potential leaders with this notion: Say not just what you say you will do for the country but what have you already done.
“Second, it is incredibly important that you recognise that in a democracy, it is you who gets to make the decision,” Symington said.
