The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has kicked off his campaign with a free online copy of his book, BIG (Build, Innovate, Grow), which distil his vision for the country come 2019.
“I have painstakingly outlined my vision for Nigeria in my book, I am the first and dare say only presidential candidate to ever do this
“It is not a policy document or just a few years plan, it’s a vision that even my successors can latch on and continue. With my book: B.I.G, all Nigerians have a real blue print of what to expect from 2019” Moghalu said on Tuesday.
In a statement made available to our correspondent in Lagos, the presidential hopeful also explained why he chose a lady as his running mate despite being advised to the contrary.
It will be recalled that Moghalu had earlier announced an activist, 37-year-old Mrs. Umma Getso as his running mate.
He said his campaign would be focused on the issues that affect the everyday Nigerian and nothing more.
Moghalu who released his book about his vision for Nigeria since February, insisted that he understands the solutions to the nation’s problems like the back of his palm.
He is therefore offering a free download of the soft copy of the book to Nigerians on all his social media handles. Moghalu’s book is titled “BIG” as an acronym for Build, Innovate and Grow.
He says he will be bringing plenty of innovation, quality leadership, nation building through systematic restructuring and real federalism, human capital development, economic growth hinged on philosophical foundation, and creatively managing the nation’s economy through his fiscal policy when he becomes president.
“My presidency will successfully move Nigeria away from an oil dependent economy to one that rewards innovation, creative thinking and hard work.
“For far too long, we have depended on oil to drive this nation because leadership has been lazy. That will change when I become president. The knowledge economy is what drives nations, not its non-renewable resources.
“My presidency will end this rent economy we have been running and restore hope to a suffering people. Nigerians deserve better than they have been getting from these two political parties who can’t fix the nation’s problems because they simply do not know better or have the capacity to”, Moghalu said.
