A community chieftain in Imo State, Emeka Udokporo, has urged Nigerians not to vote along party lines but on the competence and credibility of individual candidates in the coming 2023 general elections. 
The Imo industrialist blamed the failure in the education system of the country on bad leadership and the inability of stakeholders to place their priorities right.
Udokporo, Chief Executive Officer, Flab Engineering Services Ltd and Chairman, Ihiagwa Town Management Committee (ITMC), gave the charge in Owerri, yesterday while speaking on the challenges confronting the education system in the country, including the protracted industrial action embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASSU). 
He said: “Until Nigeria’s leaders prioritise efforts that would guarantee sound education and good governance over personal interests, adequate security would remain a mirage.
“When a government fails to continually invest in education and offer good governance, the result is what we are witnessing today in Nigeria.
“The challenge we are currently facing in our education system has to do with bad leadership. You can’t give what you don’t have. Once you have the right leadership in place across all levels of government, including in our homes, every other thing will fall in line.”
“This is why I advise that the election in 2023 should not be about the party. If you are in Nigeria and you are sincere with yourself, the best we can do is to identify the right persons for the job and vote for them to change the narrative.
“I also want to advise, especially our youths, to imbibe the right attitude. We need to avoid unnecessary sentiments and selfish interests. We should rather uphold efforts that would guarantee our collective well-being and progress as a people and nation. 2023 general elections provide us with an opportunity to get things right again.”
