Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP-Bayelsa East) has stated that religion and tribe of a presidential candidate are not essential in selecting next president but the capability of the candidate.
In a post on his Twitter page, the media mogul asked Nigerians if they are better today than they were in 2015.
Murray-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.”
