Ohuabunwa decries Nigeria’s heightening insecurity-By -Reginald OkoroA

Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, 2023 presidential aspirant in the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has decried the heightening insecurity in Nigeria and called for actions to stem a drift to anarchy.This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by Ohuabunwa after he submitted his expression of interest and PDP presidential forms at the party’s national secretariat, Wadata plaza, in Abuja.

The statement signed by Ohuabunwa was made available to newsmen in Abakaliki on Friday by the Ohuabunwa Media Office.The presidential aspirant who lamented the spiralling violence; killings, abductions, terrifying dehumanisation and sufferings the citizenry currently go through in the country said that Nigerians needed uncommon help.

Ohuabunwa said he was competent, equipped and genuinely poised to become the nation’s president, in 2023. He added that he did not belong to the category of aspirants, who were stage-managing their intentions to run for the presidency for the sole aim of exploiting Nigerians.He said, “I’m the most serious aspirant, in the PDP so far. I have been with the delegates of the entire 36 states of Nigeria, meeting with them one-on-one the second time. “You can ask PDP faithful across the states and they will tell you; I have traveled to Zamfara state, I have been to Kabbi, Kaduna, Bauchi, Sokoto states and even Maiduguri, in Bornu state.”I do most of these journeys by road. I’m not one of the aspirants that gather somewhere and say what they are not doing, making it look like they are doing something.”Anybody who is not serious and committed to solving the problems of Nigeria cannot do what I’m doing.”Anybody who does not feel what the country is going through currently and cannot confront it with courage, cannot be a better option for Nigeria at this time the country is going through a lot.”Nigerians can’t be running away. We need to take back our country. Nigerians are running away from kidnapping, abduction, armed robbery and ritualists. “This shouldn’t be happening; and so, we need to confront these seemingly security challenges and then take back our country.

“In my little rank as a civilian youth, and not with any paraphernalia, I have been able to go round the country to see the sufferings of the people, to sympathise with them and encourage them. “I have interacted with many Nigerians. I understand what their feelings are. I know what they are going through.

“They are not happy they are being f’orcefully made to go through these ugly experiences. So, my chances of clinching the PDP ticket are quite high.”My chances are very high. So, the question of whether the aspirants are currently 14 or 18 in number, is not the issue. “Of course, by the end of the day, water will definitely find its course. It’s noble for anybody to express intention to serve his or her nation, as far as that intention is not borne out of selfishness or bait for appointment by the end of the day. “If you really have the motivation, that’s fine.

Becoming the president of a country, is not a job you just wake one morning and you start making noise about it. “It must be something you must have thought through over many months and years with the conviction that you have a vision, the appropriate enlightenment, the competence, the character and the courage to be able to play the role. “And taking up the role effectively is as a result of successful previous experiences. So, I believe I’m equipped, I believe I’m competent and I believe I have the character to serve Nigerians as their president.”
