The 2019 presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has declared his ambition to take a shot at Nigeria’s presidency again in 2023.
Africa Today News, New York reports that Moghalu, who earlier said he had resigned from the YPP and had also quit partisan politics, however, he has now stated that he has changed his mind.
According to him, his decision to re-contest is due to concern for the youth and to seek a clearer alternative to the status quo that would tackle challenges currently facing the nation.
He further stated that he would decide on a party to join in the next few months.
Moghalu said he would run on a four-point agenda which he code-named ‘SWAG.’
SWAG, he said, means ‘Security for all Nigerians and Nigeria’s territory; War against poverty: skills, jobs for our youths and an innovative economy; Accelerated education and healthcare reform; Good governance: inclusive, transparent, effective and accountable.’
Moghalu also promised to run a government with a team of highly competent Nigerians from all parts of the country if elected.
‘Along with strengthened, independent institutions, we will deliver results on a 4 point agenda in four years,’ he pledged.
