A former member of the House of Representatives, Dr. Usman Bugaje, has picked the presidential nomination and Expression of Interest forms of the Peoples Redemption party (PRP).
Speaking shortly after picking the forms, Bugaje advised Nigerians to vote for aspirants who have the interest of the country at heart.
He said Nigerians need to vote for credible and visionary leaders who would deliver on their campaign promises and redeem the country from what he called electoral corruption.
He said, “The 2023 election offers us the opportunity to change our trajectory by electing leaders that are knowledgeable, competent and credible. Nigeria is not working, but worse still it has become one of the most dangerous places on the globe. Meanwhile its peers are all well ahead catching up with the first world.
“This is clearly the culmination of the two decades of bad governance. To be sure, in the last 23years, poverty has more than doubled, hundreds of thousands of young people have not found jobs, our infrastructure has been decaying without renewal, and worst of all insecurity has escalated to levels that have made life literally impossible.
“It has led to prolonged school closures; impoverished poor rural communities, it has crippled agriculture causing food shortages that can lead to famine and displaced hundreds of thousands of people, disrupting their lives and traumatizing their psyche.”
