Labour Party governorship candidate in Imo State, Basil Udochukwu Maduka, has said February 25 elections will usher in a new Nigeria.
Reviewing the upcoming elections, Maduka, a knight of the Anglican Communion, said he expects the outcome of the election to be a departure from the norm, where incompetent and poorly prepared persons are elected.
According to the oil and gas services magnate, Nigerians have seen the light and are now ready to elect their new president based on character, capacity, competence, ability and track record, adding that the new president must be a man who does not carry any political garbage or corruption infested profile.
The Labour Party chieftain said Nigeria now needs a new president that would unite the country and not one that would divide the country further.
“We do not need a president who would loot the country dry and turn the commonwealth of the people into his private estate. Nigeria needs a new president that will act as a servant leader and see every Nigerian as his constituent and every part of the country as his constituency.
“A leader that would bring about the rebirth of a country enmeshed in the dangerous and unparalleled incompetent leadership and instability that have become the lot of Nigeria. Out of the 15 presidential candidates, only Peter Obi of the Labour Party could bring Nigeria out of the woods,” he said.
Prompting Nigerians to join in the struggle to reset Nigeria, the governorship candidate admonished all eligible voters to take the advantage of the window made available by Independent National Electoral Commission to go and collect their PVCs to be part of the movement for a new Nigeria.
Maduka, who promised to turn Imo State into an industrial hub and silicon valley of Nigeria if elected governor, urged the youths to use the opportunity of the election to take back their country from baggage-carrying politicians whose plans are to subject them to perpetual slavery.
