A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress has tendered a piece of advice for Nigeria’s electoral body ahead of the 2023 elections
Jonathan Vatsa, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress party in Niger state on Sunday, January 16, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that all the 2023 presidential aspirants make their medical certificates available.
New Telegraph reports that the APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu should also not be the only aspirant expected to declare his age, source of wealth and medical history inclusive.
Vatsa said INEC needs to help Nigerians know these details about those who seek to run for various offices by demanding this information.
He said: “The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) needs to help Nigerians know the health status of all aspirants.
“President Muhammadu Buhari left this country for several months for medical issues; do we want to experience another medical tourism?”
For Vatsa, details such as listed above should be made compulsory for all aspirants ahead of the 2023 general election.
Vatsa said: “Nigerians need to only vote for candidates that are medically qualified and not for a person that is not fit. The presidency is not where you will go and we will start saying we need to start managing your health.
“Nigerians should know the health status of candidates they are voting for.”
