I want to rescue our Nation – Oby Ezekwesili reaffirm why she is in Politics
The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili, says she is in politics to rescue the nation from its current situation.
Ezekwesili stated this on Sunday while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday politics.
Ezekwesili said: “I am in politics not because I need the title. I am in politics not because I need to answer Madam President. I am in politics because there is an urgent need to rescue our nation,” she said.
“This is a Nigeria where we hardly know what is going on in NNPC, we hardly know the extent of what they now re-baptized as “Subsidy” – under-recovery of cost.”
According to her, Nigerians are tired of the politics of zoning with respect to who occupies the office of the President.
She also added that Nigerians does not know
Ezekwesili stated that most citizens have alienated themselves from the country as a result of the way those at the helm of affairs govern the nation.
She, however, promised to change the way things work if given the mandate to become Nigeria’s President.
“I am interested in tackling poverty. I want to govern in a way that we can tackle poverty from more than 80 million Nigerians.
“I am tired of the failure of Nigeria. If we are going to get a different Nigeria, we need to think of economic restructuring from an economic prism. The politicians don’t think of economic when they talk about restructuring,” Ezekwesili added.
