ONITSHA, Nigeria – Presidential aspirant on the platform of People’s Democratic Party PDP, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa has said that it is dangerous to be President of Nigeria. Ohuabunwa stated this on Saturday while wooing Anambra state PDP delegates ahead of the party primary election on 28/29 May2022.
According to him, the country needs a fearless and courageous leadership to match the danger in the system. To be president of Nigeria is dangerous , not only physical but spiritual” he said.
According to him, President of Nigeria should be prepared to step on toes and if possible take the bullet in the course of salvaging the nation and I am offering myself to do that.
“When you look at the situation in the country today you can agree with me that everything is wrong about Nigeria and there are many people who do not want change and they will do everything to resist it and they can go any lent and that is why it is dangerous to be President of Nigeria.
“But I present myself to take the courage and if possible the bullet to return Nigeria to it’s past glory and I wish to assure you that if elected the narrative will change” he said .
Ohuabunwa however lamented that some people at the helm of affairs do not understand the level of the problems in the country by going to obtain nomination form as minister , while university lectures are on strike.
“I wonder the type of President that we shall have when people who want to be President of Nigeria do not appreciate the level of problems in the country.
A minister for Education and minister of Labour went and collected form for President when ASUU is on strike and people are clapping” he said .
Ohuabunwa further contended that the agitation for a President of Nigeria of Igbo extraction cannot be wished away , noting that Nigerians are holding the Igbo down and also holding herself .
“They do not want us to be President because they know that we shall ensure fairness, equity and justice and that we will change Nigeria.
“But as our people say anyone that is holding a strong man on the ground is holding himself and by extension holding Nigeria from progressing,” he said .
