Nnamani guns for presidency after failing to make APC NWC

Ken Nnamani, a former president of the senate, has declared his interest in contesting the 2023 presidential election under the banner of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Nnamani’s presidential bid comes weeks after he was edged out of the contest for the party’s national vice chairmanship (southeast). The APC had settled for consensus candidates to be picked among its various political blocs.

The former president of the Senate declared his latest ambition at a press conference, held in Abuja, on Friday.

“Looking at the array of aspirants to replace President Buhari in 2023 under the platform of the APC, I believe that I am very suited for the job of the President of the republic at this period in the history of Nigeria,” he said.

“We will all agree that President Buhari met enormous challenges. In spite of the challenges we face, we have to acknowledge Mr. President’s patriotism that manifests in the unshaken belief that Nigeria will move past the current problems and setbacks.

“I am aspiring to be president in 2023 because I believe that at this period of grave crisis, Nigeria needs to be reinvented to be a modern, democratic state that prioritizes the socioeconomic wellbeing of its citizens; to be restructured from inefficient consumption to production; and to be led with integrity and compassion.

“Nigeria needs a leader who can build a coalition of diverse talents and identities and regain the trust of Nigerians in the Nigerian state.”

He also said he believes that a good leadership can make Nigeria can “a prosperous, peaceful, and stable country.”
