An Akure based medical doctor, Thomas-Wilson Ikubese has attributed the current state of things in the country to leadership problem.
Dr. Ikubese dropped the hint in Akure while declaring his ambition to contest the 2019 presidential elections.
He noted that the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party have failed the masses, saying Nigeria ought to be the pride of the black race, but that reverse was the case today.
He promised that if given the chance in 2019 he would transform the country for better and advised youths to rise and vie for elective post.
” I hereby call on our youths, which form 70% of the Nigerian Population, to rise and join me in this civil revolution through the ballot box come 2019,rather than recycle the current political brigandages,” Dr Ikubese said.
The NCP presidential aspirant noted he had written several books to the government on how the country could be transformed and developed, but regretted that those recommendations have been jettisoned by the people at the helm of affairs.
” Seeing that our present crop of political leadership might never implement these recommendations, I have decided to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria ,so that I can put machineries in place for the actualization of these recommendations, which will birth the New Nigeria of our dreams.
The state Chairman of NCP, Mr.David Olasuyi described the party as the one formed to cater for the needs of the masses.
Olasuyi while saying that Dr. Ikubese has what it takes to lead Nigeria to a greater height, he added that the party is poised for good governance come 2019.
