Former Governor of Ogun State and presidential hopeful, Ibikunle Amosun, has promised to help the county achieve its greatness if elected as the next president in 2023.
Amosun stated that he has the requisite experiences in both private and public sectors to provide the needed leadership that will galvanise the country to achieve its destiny.
He stated these on Thursday during his presidential declaration at the Shehu Musa Yaradu Centre in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Amosun stated that he is aware of the task that lies ahead and the magnitude of the sacrifice anybody who wishes to lead the country into its next phase must make.
He said: “My wide range of experiences in both the private and public sector in political parties and political alliances in two of the three branches of government, that is the legislative and executive arm, and also at every level of government have given me the requisite insights and political vision and deep understanding and strength of Nigeria’s diversity adequate to provide the needed leadership that will galvanise our country to achieve our manifest destiny as the leading nation, not only in Africa but in the black world.
“Today, I’m formally announcing my candidacy for the presidential ticket of our great party, the All Progressives Congress and the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I am so conscious of the immensity of the task that lies ahead in our country and the magnitude of the sacrifice anybody who wishes to lead our country into the next phase must make.
“This is to honour the historic call and duty to honour the next phase of our collective journey to national glory. It is a duty to renergise our faith in the future of the country even in the face of threats to our national sovereignty by insurgents and terrorists. A duty to renew hope in our collective destiny even in the light of some doubts expressed and mobilised about our shared faith.
“I’m therefore confident in the future of this country and the great possibilities that lie ahead for us as a free people.”
