2023: With my track record, I’ll excel as Nigeria’s president – Gov Emmanuel
Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, says Nigeria is challenged in all areas and needs to be rescued, adding that with his track records, he was the best man to rescue Nigeria.
He stated this at Transcorp Hotel, Calabar on Tuesday when he visited Cross River State to declare his interest to run for the presidency in 2023.
Udom, who was accompanied by his campaign council chairman and former governor of Benue state, Gabriel Suswam, and stalwarts of the Peoples Democratic Party, said, “Today, we are challenged. Today we must rescue Nigeria. God’s gift to man is man. God has given someone to rescue Nigeria. That man is Udom Emmanuel.
“I have come to partner with God to rescue Nigeria. Nigeria must be rescued and restored. We are coming with a belief and not just a message.”
He decried the parlous state of the nation’s economy and said he is equipped to revamp the economy, having transformed the economy of Akwa Ibom State in the past seven years.
According to him, “Nigeria needs a president that can rise and challenge the status quo. I have succeeded in the private sector. I have succeeded in the public sector. Give me Nigeria and I will excel.”
