In the light of the vigorous campaign and solidarity against 2019 general election in Nigeria. Nigerians and their votes decides who will lead them for the next four years.

Contest for the presidential seat is being run by 70 candidates, in which two have the higher hand.

They’re current president, Muhammadu Buhari from APC and former Nigerian vice president, Atiku Abubakar from PDP.

A female contestant who campaigns in hope for Nigeria, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili also proves a worthy opposition too. Equal right for women and girl-child rights has been the chant of her parade.

President Buhari and Atiku Abubakar are equally yoked as well as the other unrelenting 68 presidential candidates.

The current President, President Buhari promises to make Nigeria great again even while on seat. His fight for corruption is debatable despite his claims to be a man of intergrity.

@atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party, did not surprise him.
Speaking at a meeting with a select group of South-east leaders on Friday, at the State House, Abuja, PMB said that the moment the so-called resolution was announced, he got calls from well-meaning leaders from the region asking him to disregard it as it was without any substance. According to him, “From that moment, I knew that the resolution would not stand, and alas, there it was”.
President Buhari said that his party, the All Progressives Congress, got it right from the very beginning that the major problems facing the country were mainly on security, corruption and the economy.

“We have done so much. Given the chance, we will do more. Given every chance, we will tell Nigerians where we were in 2015 and what we have achieved up to now.

“We will not get tired of speaking about the golden opportunity Nigeria lost during 16 years of the PDP. We earned money, which we didn’t use,” he said.

“The state of infrastructure we inherited was terrible – no roads, the railway was killed and power. They lacked conscience because anybody with conscience will not do what they did. We will report them to Nigerians. Let anybody lead this country but not the PDP. They were so reckless with the resources of the country,” the President said.

“If you ruin the economy, send your children abroad to get education, won’t they come back?” he asked, adding: “I said it 30 years ago that this is the only country we have. We must stay here and salvage it together.”

The leaders of the delegation, Engr. Emeka Ekwuosa and the Nat’l Chairman of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chief Chekwas Okorie, informed President Buhari that the Igbos and South-easterners generally understand the good things he is doing for Nigeria. Which they said, had unfortunately been misunderstood. They promised to mobilise support for him in the south-east, saying that his re-election will be a national consensus.

How the Oby Ezekwesili’s Presidency will Lift 80+ Million Nigerians Out of Poverty

My mission is not just to change this #APCPDP government, but more than that, we must disrupt the politics and governance of the status quo and quickly chart a new course for the future of our country.

Oby Ezekwesili rendering a speech

Oby Ezekwesili, a Nigerian female presidential seat aspirant pens down how her presidency will lift 80 millions Nigerians out of poverty. Her electoral campaign is surrounded by job creation, equality and poverty elimination. Ezekwesili has been a strong voice behind the Bring Back Our Girls campaign. She campaigns under the banner of ACPN – Allied Congress Party of Nigeria. In a twitter thread she wrote down her strategy which she tends to employ if she emerges as Nigerian president. You can consider it a manifesto but its a way forward for Nigeria.

From Poverty Central to Prosperity: How the Obiageli ‘Oby’ Ezekwesili Presidency will lift 80+ million Nigerians out of poverty.

Today is an exciting day for this campaign as we will be sharing the most important issue in our ambitious plan for Nigeria that shows our readiness to govern from Day One. I will be telling you how we intend to lift 80 million Nigerians out of poverty. We expect citizens to hold us to account for every word we say and every promise we make, not just on our innovative solutions for tackling poverty which I would be sharing today, but on our entire manifesto to be released to the public on Friday. I will like to start today by reminding us of a fact which a lot of us have stopped believing. It’s a fact that was true in 1960 when our founders won the battle for Independence and took their destinies and the destinies of their children in their hands. It’s a fact that remained true in the midst of the setbacks and traumas of seven military coups, a horrible civil war and decades of failed political leadership.

It’s a fact that did not change through seasons of economic recessions, structural adjustments and brutal dictatorships. It did not change when Abiola’s hope was deferred or when Obasanjo transmuted from prison to president or, indeed, when President Muhammadu Buhari, got another chance in 2015 to lead this country. It has remained true up till this very moment as I stand today, challenging all of us to seize the opportunity for a new independence from our rapacious ruling class. That fact is that Nigeria is a great country and Nigerians are great people. It’s true. This isn’t something that I feel obligated to say just because I am running for president.

Who is Ebuka?

It is true – Nigeria is a great country. Sometimes it is hard to believe Nigeria’s greatness in the midst of our daily struggles, and as we watch our country repeat the same mistakes over and over again. It is hard to remember the contributions our country has made for freedom and peace across the African continent. We are blessed with fertile, arable land; the largest market in Africa; abundant natural resources. We are Africa’s largest economy. Our music and movies and creative talents are the greatest soft power in Africa. We have the most innovative, talented and resourceful concentration of black people in the world. Nigeria is a great country. I believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds – and that belief is what drives me every single day of this journey. I am an impatient optimist. I cannot stand it when we choose to accept mediocrity or resign ourselves to lowly standards. Nigeria can do much better.

Oby Ezekwesili

Oby Ezekwesili

I care about Nigeria and Nigerians enough to know that the back-to-back failed leadership has held us back for far too long. And if we do not take a stand and take our country back, they would still be here in years to come, holding back our children and their children. God forbid! I have a dream of a new Nigeria that works for all, not just for a small clique who see politics as their means to stupendous wealth while the majority of those they govern are afflicted with poverty and misery. I have a dream of an inclusive and prosperous country where there is equality of opportunity for all. Our country will be a great meritocracy where success in life is not determined by your background or tribe or gender or religion or family name but by your talents and hard work. I have a dream of a strong, indivisible nation with a united purpose and shared national values. I have a dream of a new Nigeria that finally manages her diversity effectively and draws on the benefits of our greater creativity, innovation and shared progress.

The Nigeria we would start building from 2019 would not trudge into the future with uncertainty like chickens when we have all it takes to soar with confidence like eagles. I want to reignite belief in Nigeria’s greatness by leading a government that would make clear promises to citizens and deliver on them, not like the current leadership which spent its first year in office denying all the promises it made to get into that office. My mission is not just to change this government, but more than that, we must disrupt the politics and governance of the status quo and quickly chart a new course for the future of our country. We have enough young people, many progressive men and women, who are signing up with our citizens’ party, , to unleash the principles of disruptive technologies to our politics for good.

I believe that a blessed and great country like ours has all it takes to confront whatever challenges stand on our way, to beat them and to win! Like former US President Bill Clinton noted for his country, I too believe that there is nothing wrong with Nigeria that cannot be fixed with what is right in Nigeria. We have all it takes. And right now, there are seven monstrous challenges that I see holding us down. To solve each of them would need bold, visionary leadership and hardwork from an intelligent government. 1. Too little productivity and competitiveness of the Nigerian economy: For a nation of our size and our potentials, our low real Gross Domestic Product of $375.77 billion after 58 years of independence is terribly underwhelming.
