Few weeks before the 2019 general elections, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), John Gbor, has advised Nigerians to ignore the call by the present administration in taking it to next level.
He said the next level as promised, which is the campaign theme of the President Muhammadu Buhari and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, means incompetency and tyranny.
In his new year message made available through his Director of Strategic Communication of his campaign organisation, Mike Angel on Tuesday, Gbor said the present administration had been marred with insecurity, impunity, unemployment and hate while he assured of restructuring if elected as the President.
He said, “They promise you next level of incompetence and tyranny, I promise you competence, courage, character and poverty-reducing good governance.
“They condone insecurity and impunity, I promise security of life and property, justice, equality, harmony and food security.
“They fan the ember of hate and violence, Gbor sows the seeds of love and peace. They victimise Nigerian workers with wringing wretched wage, I promise real living wage in the midst of plenty.
“They leave our youths to roam the streets without job and value, I promise to create jobs for the youth, women and physically challenged people by setting an agency to that effect in the Presidency, through data mining with utmost urgency.”
I implore you all to go to the new year with hope. I implore you all to take back the Nigerian spirit lost 74 years ago. I implore you all to vote for me as your President in February and all APGA contestants nationwide.
He urged Nigerians to vote for his new approach in building the economy and tackling insecurity challenges faced by the country.
“The Nigerian spirit of patriotism, championed by the youths in 1944, had evaporated. We must be patriotic. We must tackle poverty headlong.
“We must decentralise power generation, distribution and management. We shall create a green belt zone to tackle the menace of desertification in Nigeria.
“We shall support both the crop and livestock farmers in the realisation of their return on investment.
“We shall banish hunger, poverty, illiteracy, disease insecurity and fear. We shall pursue innovative and transformational leadership style under God to achieve our aims and aspirations in a new Nigeria, where no one and no place will be left behind,” he said.
