The All Progressives Congress (APC) welcomed another presidential aspirant on Thursday, May 5 by the name of Ms Uju Ohanenye.
Ms Ohanenye bought the party’s Expression of Interest and Nomination forms in Abuja, making her the first female candidate vying for the presidential seat from the ruling party.
While speaking with pressmen, Ms Ohanenye expressed her intention to remain gallant amidst potential intimidation from the male aspirants.
“My fear is that men will want to muscle me out, but I am standing firmly for the people I am here to protect.
“They will want to push me over, but I cannot be intimidated. I have been emboldened,’’ she stated.
The legal practitioner revealed that she has all it takes to bring solutions to the issues bedeviling Nigeria. She added that the decision to contest was triggered by her love for Nigeria, and the desire to rescue the country from the shackles of poverty, corruption and insecurity.
“The major solution I am bringing on board is to involve the commoners, less privileged, in governance of the country. If we don’t involve, from killing of the commoners they will kill the elite. We must involve them to get them understand what is going on. Nigerian youths are very intelligent and instead of using them negatively, we use them positively for the growth of the country.
“I am going to localise the construction of roads and many other things. I won’t copy the westerners all through because they have their way of constructing it which makes very expensive. I want to localise Moston the roads and involve indigenes of those areas in constructing them. They will generally get involved and get paid. It will reduce unemployment, keep the busy and out of mischief,” she articulated.
Ms Ohanenye has stated that the only condition for her withdrawal from the race, would be to see a worthy candidate who has the interest of Nigerians at heart, emerge winner.
