Alhaji Mohammed Goni, a former governor of Borno, has advised Nigerians to vote credibleÂ leaders who will contribute positively to national development.
Goni gave the advice in Maiduguri on Tuesday when the executives of National Voter Forum,Â led by Dr Khalifa Dikwa, paid him a courtesy visit.
He said the people should beware of money bags that use money to deceive the electorateÂ in order to loot governmentâ€™s treasury.
The former governor called on the people of the state to come out en masse andÂ participate in the voter registration to ensure the success of 2011 elections.
Earlier, Dikwa said that the essence of their visit was to intimate him to the presenceÂ of the forum in Borno.
According to him, the organisation will sensitise the people of the state on the need toÂ register and be in a position to vote.
