Ahmed Musa, who remains Nigeria’s most-capped player ever, has urged voters not to be distracted by deceitful tactics.

He wrote:

“The change we want in Nigeria starts with YOU and I. Please exercise your rights and whilst doing that, let’s get rid of tribalism, ethnicity or the likes as we are all one at the end of the day.
‘Together we can make the 2023 election a success if we do all that is right. Do not be distracted by the deceitful tactics of the enemy and let us guard our Country Nigeria jealously.
“Nigeria will be great again. Peace will be restored to if we all choose to do the right thing. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Musa not impressed with Nigeria's politicians

Meanwhile, Musa lambasted Nigerian politicians for being insensitive towards education over the recent strike by staff of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

His comments came hours after pictures flooded the internet as Jordan Nyesom-Wike, son of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike graduated from the University of Exeter, in the United Kingdom.

The unions embarked on industrial actions while demanding improved welfare packages, better working conditions, and the implementation of various labour agreements signed with the Federal Government between 2009 and 2020.
