A presidential aspirant, Prof. Chidi Moghalu has spoken up on his chances in emerging victorious at the 2019 election, disclosing that the citizens of Nigeria have woken from their captivity by the political class and that his team has a strategy for mobilizing the electorate.
He stated this on Wednesday while delivering a speech entitled: “Overcoming Poverty: The Secret of the Wealth of Nations,’ at the 2018 Bullion Lecture organised by the Centre for Financial Journalism in Lagos.
The former CBN chief stressed that in order to address the myriad of problems facing Nigeria; citizens must now elect a new kind of leadership that offers something radically different by virtue of possessing the insights and having the political will to take the economic management of Nigeria in to a new direction of soundness, quality and results.
Reacting to those dismissing his chances in the next election, he said, “That was how they dismissed Donald Trump, that was how they dismissed Emmanuel Macron, and I want to tell you that the ground is shifting in Nigeria.
“You cannot say that not participating in the sleaze that passes for Nigeria’s politics should disqualify me from running for Nigerian’s president, not having local government funds should not disqualify me.
“The people of Nigeria have woken up. We have been captured by the political class. But the people have decided to move in. Let it be clear, we have a strategy for mobilisation, we have a strategy for organisation, we have a message and a vision that is very clear.”
